“If you hire a professional executor in South Africa they are allowed to, by law, charge 3,5% plus VAT.” – Lisa Linfield

“Guardians look after your children.” – Lisa Linfield

“If a child is going to one of your nominated guardians, they’ve lost both of you at the time. And so be careful of ripping them out of their context.” – Lisa Linfield

“The money is a core portion to the trust, so you need people who really understand money in order to effectively manage this trust.” – Lisa Linfield
