Write a will to protect your investments for your dependents

To make sure that your money and property is going to the people you want to when you die, write a will. A will is a signed document which spells out how, and by whom, you want your property to be managed after your death and who should benefit from it. Don’t forget to update your will whenever you get new property, children, a partner or whenever you lose, sell or give away property included in your original will. Your dependents should know where to find your will..
