Description provided by the integrator:

Inherit Australia is a bespoke estate planning platform and marketplace that changes the way advisers traditionally manage their clients' estate planning needs. At the heart of the system is the Inherit legal bot that enables advisers to navigate estate planning conversations with their clients without requiring any special knowledge or training and without the risk of giving legal advice . The bot prompts advisers to ask questions about their client's affairs to gather important information relevant to their circumstances. This information is used to produce an estate planning report that identifies issues and gaps in the client's existing estate plan. This is the first phase of the process and is designed to move the client into the second phase, which is to identify their testamentary wishes and to appropriately document those wishes.

At the conclusion of the second phase, the client signs off the information collected, Inherit calculates the appropriate estate planning fee and a lawyer on the Inherit panel is engaged by the adviser to review and finalise documents created by Inherit for the lawyer and to receive legal advice around the issues identified by the legal bot. Inherit Australia’s legal panel of lawyers spans across jurisdictions and skillsets. This means advisers can match the best lawyer or professional for each client’s unique circumstances.

The adviser manages and drives the entire process and charges a fee for their service.

Inherit's Pay As You Go pricing means that there is no start-up cost or ongoing commitment. Advisers can facilitate an estate plan for a client and benefit from an immediate return on investment.

Inherit Australia's systems and process allows advisers to not only identify cross-referral opportunities within their practice but to plan the distribution of their client's wealth on death and be part of that distribution to the next generation, thereby adding value to the adviser's business.
