Digital Assets

At the risk of stating the obvious, we are becoming increasingly reliant on digital technology to carry out everyday activities and this has inevitably led to the digitisation of our content e.g. photos and music, our accounts e.g. banking and social media, and even our assets e.g. PayPal, iTunes, Bitcoin etc.

Despite this rapidly changing culture, there are very few clients who have considered what would happen to their digital estate on their death. And, unfortunately, it is becoming a growing problem in estate administrations.
