How to make or update your will

Having an up-to-date professionally written will is very important. It’s the only way to ensure your wishes are carried out after you pass away, and the people and causes you care about are looked after.

Making a will

Making a will has never been easier. We recommend you prepare your will through a solicitor. This is the best way to ensure it’s accurate, legally binding and truly fulfills your wishes. If you don’t have a solicitor, you can find one using your country of residence’s Law Society website.

We’ve produced a free guide to tell you all you need to know about making or updating your will.
