Dismemberment of property

Property stripping is another asset management strategy that could be relevant for seniors. It consists of the separation of property rights into bare ownership and usufruct.

Choosing the right investment at age 80 and beyond requires careful consideration of several factors. The security of capital, the necessary liquidity and the objectives of wealth transmission, each of these options must be carefully evaluated to ensure that it perfectly corresponds to the expectations and needs of the senior investor.
