Focus Fiduciary Solutions

Focus Fiduciary Solutions (FFS) is a corporate trustee and estate administration solution for Focus partner firms and their clients. According to Cerulli Associates,[1] an estimated $70 trillion in assets will pass from one generation to the next by 2042. We expect that a substantial portion of this wealth transfer will occur via trust structures. To be relevant in multi-generational family planning, advisors should get ahead of the curve by helping clients shape their estate plan and successfully execute their legacy.
