This is further evidence that legacy income is on the rise - increasing significantly over the last few years. The values of legacies have decreased slightly - and whilst Brexit hasn't impacted legacies yet, I suspect this will change. We've already seen asset values (particularly property) drop notably as a result of Brexit.
The vitality of the legacy sector remains clear - and investing in this sector is increasingly important, particularly in the current economic climate.
The total income from legacies in the 12 months to the end of September 2016 was up by 8.5 per cent, according to the latest overview from Legacy Foresight.
