What do I want to bequeath?

Whether you like it or not, it is an absolute certainty that after your death the tax authorities will be knocking on the door to demand a percentage. You may want to prepare for such certainties during your life (and upon your death) and ensure the maximum possible portion of your capital benefits your next of kin or good causes. You may also, for example, decide to set up your own fund.
