Your Family Heritage Research

Your family heritage trust
Where possible, Myprotector will investigate the origin of your family name / history and share this research with your children and grandchildren so that they learn about their family history and the journey of previous generations. This understanding is extremely rewarding and will enrich the lives of those who follow in your footsteps. This is a fee-for-service for this research to be done and the entire process can be included in your own story so that your children can understand your life as they build a legacy of their own.
Leave financial support to your loved ones and help future generations as they establish themselves in life.

Within the Myprotector family heritage trust, our trustees will follow your instructions regarding the benefits you would like to help your family with. Protect your hard earned wealth so that it does not get squandered but rather do what you can to set them up for success. Speak to Myprotector about the family heritage trust.

Did you know?

“Heritage plans” or “Ethical Wills”, are one and the same thing. They have gained broad popularity in recent years. The earliest heritage plans were most likely passed on by word of mouth, while those of later generations were recorded on paper. Wills dating from the Medieval and Renaissance periods have even been preserved to modern times.

Ironically, it is the way we live rather than how we die that has made Heritage plans more popular recently.

Supporting Research

Market research conducted by ourselves also concurred with an extensive research exercise, conducted by Ken Dychtwald on behalf of Allianz Life Assurance, which shows that there is a need to enhance the publics existing traditionally accepted view of “Wills”, to augment and allow them to reflect not only their material wealth but also their heritage and ethical values.

In 2005, the study by Allianz found that leaving a legacy (an emotional inheritance) was far more important to people than leaving a financial inheritance, and that 77% of both “baby boomers” and their parents rated “values and life lessons” as the most important legacy they could receive or leave. Only 10% of boomers said that financial assets or real estate were important as an inheritance. The study concluded that money is a ‘minor’ component of legacy to parents and their heirs. "Many people wrongly assume that the most important issue among families is money and wealth transfer -- it's not," said Ken Dychtwald, a gerontologist, and designer of the survey. "What we found was the memories, stories and the personal values were 10 times more important to people than the money."

A study by respected author/advisors, Roy Williams & Vic Priesser went into the issue of ‘what are the most critical risks that you face.’ They asked over 3,250 families who had lost their wealth, “so, what was it that actually got you?”

60% replied that it was lack of communication and trust in the family,
25% said unprepared heirs.
Less than 3% said poor planning and investments had brought about their wealth loss.

These two studies highlight the knowledge gap between the factors that conventional wisdom says causes the loss of assets and unity, versus what actually happens in real life. The Williams & Priesser study further supports the conclusion that building and enhancing trust and facilitating effective communication within the family are foundational keys to family success.

A new survey, carried out by Ipsos MORI, was commissioned by the National Trust reveals that over half of us (57%) can't name any of our great-grandparents. The survey also showed that a further 14% of the population can only name one great-grandparent. Findings were similar across all age groups, suggesting that young and old are equally unsure about their ancestry.
