Jeffrey Chiesa was featured in a Forbes article titled "Estate Planning for the Ultra-Wealthy When Living to 120 or Beyond." According to Jeff, "Controlling wealth until death is a common particle among self-made millionaires.

Because of the possibility of dementia or older wealth holders being exploited by advisors, staff, or family members, shifting some of the wealth before death can be very beneficial for all involved."
