A bequest is a provision in your will that enables you to easily arrange for the transfer of all or part of your estate. Since the bequest only enters into effect after your death, you continue to freely enjoy your property for as long as you live.
You have the freedom to name beneficiaries as you see fit, after providing for any forced heirs (such as a spouse, parents, children or grandchildren).
• A bequest to transfer your whole estate
• A bequest to transfer a percentage of your estate or a category of property (such as real estate or financial assets)
• A specific bequest to transfer one or more clearly identified items of property (a work of art, an apartment, a piece of jewelry, etc.)
A will or testament is a written document that enables you to express your last wishes and ensure that they will be strictly honored after your death.

"My mother was American and my father, French. They met in Paris. Like my brothers and sisters, I was born at the American Hospital and got all my medical care here. My children also come to this hospital. It’s an old family tradition! I want my grandchildren and great-grandchildren to receive the same excellent care.”
