Wealth Impact Planning

You likely spend a lot of time thinking about how to maximize your wealth. Where will it get the best return? How will it serve your financial goals? But have you ever considered its larger purpose?


Wealth Impact Planning is designed to help you think about your wealth through the lens of your values — how it might affect your family, benefit the causes you care about, and shape your legacy during and beyond your lifetime. It’s a critical exercise, regardless of where you are on life’s journey — and we’ll be beside you throughout the process to create a flexible plan that fits your needs and goals.



Take control of your wealth – and its future

Wealth Impact Planning helps you structure your wealth in a way that ensures your loved ones are cared for and your legacy is defined — with strategies in place to allow for the continuity of your wealth in the way you imagined. We offer access to capabilities that range from trust and estate planning services and wealth structuring guidance to philanthropic and fiduciary solutions, offered through Bank of America N.A. can help:


  • Preserve your wealth by providing tax minimization strategies and managing your expenses
  • Protect your wealth from unforeseen risk
  • Control how your wealth is deployed — and which people and causes will benefit
