Financial planners' booklet to help people put affairs in order - Huw Jones of Proposito

By Huw Jones, managing director at Proposito 

To help people plan for after their death, financial planners Proposito have created a handy booklet to enable vital information to be stored in one place.

The Cirencester-based firm has added the easy to use document as a free download on its website. 

Managing director Huw Jones explains below how the booklet aims to give people peace of mind that, when they pass on, relatives and executors will have all the necessary information to hand.

We understand how painful bereavement can be and many years of experience has led us to conclude that a great deal of worry can simply be removed by better preparation, ideally decades before the inevitable happens.

The booklet, when completed, provides a comprehensive summary of day-to-day life and final wishes, helping people's loved ones, or executors, to finalise life's formalities.

The After I've Gone booklet combines questionnaire and information. Users will be able to fill in details as wide ranging as where their Will and other important documents are kept, to information about which vets are used and pet insurance. It also covers details of funeral arrangements, as well as finances, so executors and family will know what accounts, policies etc are held.

We have recently been helping the family of a man who passed away. He hadn't shared with his family the information they would need to organise his affairs easily. We have been helping the family hunt through all his paperwork and work out what he's got, just at a time when they are grieving. This is the type of scenario the use of this booklet will help to avoid.

There is also space for business owners to leave information for fellow directors, shareholders and senior managers.

We would also advise business owners to have a separate but similar document where they store information needed to ensure the business can continue to operate. This would cover areas such as payroll, accounting and HR.
