We’re always striving to not only improve the coverage we provide you, but also to maximize the way in which we provide that coverage. So, we talked to hundreds of estate-planning professionals to find out how you like to get your information in today’s high-tech environment. You spoke and we listened. And, as a result, we’re pleased to introduce a new way for you to easily access all the articles and e-newsletters you get from Trusts & Estates, plus other important information for estate-planning professionals: our new iPad app, Trusts & Estates Plus. Our new app allows you to touch and experience the market in new ways—by searching, sorting and browsing information from a variety of expert sources. It includes 14 topic channels you can use to keep up to date on all business-related disciplines—from estate planning and taxation, family offices, philanthropy and fiduciary professions to retirement planning, insurance, practice management and elder law. Subscription information is available at www.WealthManagement.com/app. As always, we appreciate your feedback, so please let us know what you think.

Reinemann) and private equity funds with gating restrictions (see “The Gate Clause,” by J. Wesley Pennington III & Brian P. Holloway, p. 62).
