LEGS UK 2020 06 Summary Research 10 Title


Pointons tout particulièrement les chapitres suivants, qui fournissent d'intéressantes informations concernant le profil socio-économique et les motivations des testateurs:

  • Will-making: barriers to will-making (p.9)
  • Motives for charitable bequest giving: looking back, looking forwards, social influence, organisational factors, tax (p.12-26)
  • Profile of charitable bequest pledgers: age, gender, religiosity (p.28-36)
  • Legacy comunications: mail, telephone, personal visits, ... (p.35-40)
  • Decision making by older people (p.41-42)
  • A legacy model (p.43)

Legacy model

LEGS UK 2020 06 Summary Research 12 Legacy model LD

Le section intitulée 'A legacy model' propose un schéma récapitulatif des facteurs déterminants dans le processus de décision du testateur (confer supra), dont les chercheurs commentent les interactions comme suit:

" We theorise that the desire to make a will is driven by a combination of demographic factors, external events and internal desires; however, it may be moderated by apathy and anxiety about the will-making process, or, indeed, engaging with a death-related process.
We theorise that the desire to make a will is driven by a combination of demographic factors, external events and internal desires; however, it may be moderated by apathy and anxiety about the will-making process, or, indeed, engaging with a death-related process.
As the legator makes their distribution decisions, we believe they are likely to engage in a range of reflections involving looking back over their life, and looking forward past its anticipated end.
They are also likely to contemplate others’ actions, the ultimate use of their gift by beneficiaries and the tax implications of their giving.
These reflections are, we believe, likely to be influenced by charity messaging.
Based on these reflections, the legator will make decisions about the distribution of their assets to charities and family members.
These physical assets will eventually be transformed from having economic to symbolic value; ultimately, helping to confer symbolic immortality on their owner."
