Bringing families together to sustain success across generations. p: 425.647.6066 e: email@example.com
The stress of major transitions often hits families like a body blow.
Most families areill-equipped to deal with the implications of these significant transitions.
As it turns out…. 70% of wealth is gone at the end of the second generation 90% is gone at the end of the third & 98% is gone by end of the fourth.
Only 2% of families are successful.
Is your family one of the 2% that will be successful for generations? What are you doing to prepare them?
Studies show that the vast majority of those who do think they are prepared have focused on the wrong things.
The Myth The common belief is that the causes for this loss of wealth are such things as estate taxes, bad investment performance, and poor planning. Family Office Exchange study The Reality In fact, wealth is lost because the family is not prepared and is not working together. Williams and Pressier (2003)
As it turns out … The stress that results from botched transitions often fractures families, frequently ruins lives and radically depletes even large fortunes. That is where we can help… We partner with families to unleash their capacity to deal with what is coming their way so that it doesn’t ruin lives, families and fortunes.
