Our Roots

Bringing Values to Valuables

While many estate planners and lawyers prepare money for people, heritance prepares people for money. We believe in stewarding wealth wisely, sowing into our families, and succeeding values with valuables. Our mission is to create a virtuous cycle of reinvestment against the generational attrition of family values and relationships in Asia.

What is #beyondinheritance?

It is said, “no family is united by its wealth alone.” Our heritance mobile app combines financial legacy with memetic legacy to create effective inheritances for families. When families inherit values alongside the valuables, family unity and purpose is sustained from one generation to the next.

Our Conviction

Start with WHY

Traditional estate planning cannot address family feuds and social ills today. We believe the foundation of inheritance planning lies with the family itself.

HOW we do it

We empower and equip individuals and families to pass down family, values and wealth inheritances. Once family and values are strengthened, wealth succession is assured.

WHAT we do

heritance is Asia’s first digital platform that helps family plan effective inheritances. And it carries a library of powerful case studies for families to reference role models that executed effective successions.
