Family Advisory

Building a family legacy for generations

Thriving as a wealthy family means addressing important questions, like: What’s the purpose of your wealth? How do we pass on family values? How does our family ensure a successful generational transition? Is the next generation ready? How can we best manage joint family assets?
Our team of experts helps individuals and families develop a tailored strategy and implementation plan to successfully manage their wealth and family affairs for the long term.

How it works

We offer a structured approach from advisory to execution services.

Family governance

We guide you in developing a strategy for you and your family and support you in designing and implementing your bespoke family governance system, including a family constitution, family council and other decision-making governance forums. We do so through a series of thematic workshops or facilitating family meetings.

Family office

We support you with all your questions around organising your wealth professionally, from the design to the implementation of a new family office setup to the review of your current arrangements, taking into account key considerations such as: strategy, scope of activities, location, costs, business model, staffing and governance.

Next generation

We support your wealth transition journey and the next generation members of your family to become future leaders and responsible wealth owners. We do so through educational programs, events and global peer sharing-communities, addressing topics such as financial confidence, financial literacy, family wealth, leadership and personal development, as well as making a positive societal impact.

What next gens think

The report Voices of Next Gen: family wealth at the crossroads of legacy and impact presents an in-depth look into the mindsets of next gens. It sheds light on their world views, and shows how they

  • view wealth compared to their parents
  • drive innovation in the family business
  • change the face of their family offices
  • view opportunities to invest with impact

Are you financially confident?

Are you aware how your finances, goals, beliefs, decisions can interact and affect your life? Do you understand financial topics to help you decide what’s best for your money? Do you trust your financial advisors to have your best interest in mind?
