CreateWills - Making Will Writing Easier, Cheaper and More Accessible

80% of Malaysians don’t have valid wills and there’s more than RM90 billion worth of unclaimed assets nationwide. That’s what the President of the Malaysian Institute of Estate Planners (MIEP) said 9 months ago.

Wills and estate planning are some of the least appealing areas of personal finance, but they are essential in ensuring that your money and assets are distributed in a way that you feel best protects your loved ones and dependants. Sure part of the issue lies in the taboo around talking about death, but another part is the potential expense of the process and the inaccessibility of writing solutions or services.

CreateWills is trying to address this by digitalising the process, but can a digital product truly replace a lawyer or estate planning professional’s expertise in this nuanced and sensitive space? We speak to Raymond Gabriel, Founder and CEO, CreateWills to find out.

We also get into CreateWills business prospects, trajectory, and future plans.
