Carrot.ng berths, Aims to Simplify Access to Estate Planning Online

Carrot Technologies Limited, a fintech company has berthed in Lagos with a vision to be a dominant digital estate planning player in Africa.

The new Company is on a mission to simplify access to estate planning online for everyone, everywhere starting from Nigeria.

Explaining the concept, the Founder/CEO of Carrot Technologies Limited, Luqman Balogun, said “Life is full of uncertainties and risks. We all face these challenges irrespective of social class, ethnicity, religion and other factors. These are the realities of life. Those who succeed in life are those who acknowledge these uncertainties and hence, arm themselves with a well-planned strategy on how to face and overcome these challenges”.

One of the challenges in Nigeria today is that of inheritance and estate planning. It is generally believed that the making of wills is an exclusive preserve of the rich.

“This assumption”, Balogun said, “is patently false. Ask Carrot Technologies Limited for all the answers you need on the making of wills and inheritance and estate planning”.

He described Carrot.ng as a one-stop online estate planning solution for subscribers to securely create, update and schedule execution of their Wills and or other Testamentary instruments such as Deed of Gifts, Revocable Living Wills etc in real time, anytime, anywhere.
