UBS Next, the Swiss bank’s $200 million strategic fintech portfolio, announced that it has invested in Trust & Will, an entirely digitized U.S. estate planning platform (www.trustandwill.com). It helps digitize and personalize estate planning. Trusts, wills, and guardianships can be created online quickly and securely. The platform enables estate planning through technology. At the same time, it ensures compliance with applicable legal requirements. An interesting WealthTech venture.
With the investment in Trust & Will, UBS wants to unlock services beyond traditional wealth management services to its affluent clients.
We are very excited to now be among the companies in UBS’ fintech portfolio.Cody Barbo, founder and CEO of Trust & Will
