Susan's story: Protecting wealth through prudent planning1.

Susan received a sizeable inheritance from her parents and wanted to pass it on to her three young children. She needed careful planning to make it grow and last.

See how her plan maximized her wealth

Susan lost both of her parents at the relatively young age of 27. They were able to pass on a sizable inheritance. Susan knew that it would take careful planning to make her parents' legacy last so that she could pass it on to her three children.

Fifth Third Private Bank worked with her to maximize the tax benefits of educational savings programs in her state. They also discussed the value of using life insurance as an estate planning tool and structured her portfolio to provide an additional income source to help her give her children the lifestyle she knew her parents would want them to enjoy.
