It is far better to plan for, but not attempt to predict, potential policy changes.

Even if proposed changes to tax policy become law, their final forms remain uncertain. History tells us that such changes may not endure as economic and political environments shift. That is why the best wealth planning strategies are built around your long-term goals and incorporate flexibility to accommodate an uncertain policy landscape. Learn our outlook for the most likely tax changes and how to prepare your plan for change.


Guided by The Northern Trust Institute’s evidence-based approach, our advisors can recommend strategies that have proven most effective for clients like you. Request a meeting to begin improving your plan.
