About Vanilla

Vanilla was founded in 2019 by AdvicePeriod’s Steve Lockshin to help advisors deliver more estate planning value to their clients. Initially built for internal use, it quickly became clear that the application and need were much broader than originally contemplated.

Since then, Vanilla has built out a suite of products with the goal of reinventing the estate planning experience, end-to-end. From document preparation, robust visualizations of complex estates, detailed diagrams of how assets transfer to future generations, to ongoing estate administration, Vanilla is continuing to build out tools that allow advisors to do more for their clients.

Vanilla has partnered with some of the industry’s most influential RIA’s, law firms, and financial technology platforms to help distribute their technology, allowing them to deliver far more estate planning value to their clients.
