You and your clients have undoubtedly seen the projections about college expenses. Using an average increase of 5% per year, by 2030 the annual tuition at a four year public school could soar to $41,200, and $92,800 at a private, nonprofit school.

So, rather than an exploration of Coverdell or UGMA/UTMA accounts that you’ve all heard about before, this newsletter explores a few trust-based options that can help differentiate your practice and help your clients.
