Family Governance

Preserving and passing on wealth

Rules, rights and responsibilities Preserving and passing wealth on to future generations

Family governance can be used to determine which members belong to the (nuclear) family, how the family is organized and who has which rights and responsibilities in the family business. In many cases, inheritance, ownership or succession mechanisms are defined. Some families with members scattered around the globe set up electronic platforms that they use for discussions and decision-making. Effective family governance provides a solid basis for preserving the family, its businesses and its wealth over generations.
