Estate Planning Topics: Planning with Cryptocurrency and Digital Assets

Ryan Lee, Investment Advisor, Stock Yards Bank & Wealth Trust Mgmt.

Maria Tipton, Wealth Advisor, Stock Yards Bank & Wealth Trust Mgmt.

The adoption of digital assets, a blanket category into which cryptocurrency falls, continues to grow rapidly. The technology that drives this ecosystem is being adapted and implemented by Fortune 500 companies and Governments around the world. Sixty-eight million users hold over $1.5 Trillion in digital assets, meaning the vast majority of these accounts are held by individuals. Given the growing number of individuals engaged in this market, estate planners and fiduciaries will need to understand how to manage these assets. Moreover, the ever-evolving world of digital assets is laden with complexities and potential issues of which planners and fiduciaries need to be mindful. This presentation will discuss those complexities and best practices to avoid planning pitfalls.

Claire Parsons, Brilliant Legal Mind 

There are loads of books, articles, courses, and seminars intended to help us lawyers and accountants "overcome", "power through" or "conquer" imposter syndrome. When professional life changes as much and as rapidly as it has in the last few years, one wonders whether this is truly possible. This session doesn't promise secret ingredients or magic bullet solutions to workplace stress. It does, however, offer a new perspective on confidence and time-tested and research-based practices that can help you find it and build it for yourself. Lawyer, meditation teacher, and founder of the Brilliant Legal Mind blog, Claire E. Parsons, will explain for you how the stress response affects how we feel about and do our work and how the tools of mindfulness and compassion can help you stay steady in challenging times so you can get the job done and feel better doing it.
