Generational is also a powerful resource that provides access to our knowledge, insights and experience through an unparalleled global network of partners dedicated to help family offices succeed wherever they are.
Our comprehensive and integrated omnipresent approach helps families to structure their wealth and preserve it for future generations. Our goal is to unlock the development potential of the family through a multidisciplinary approach that scrutinises operational, regulatory, tax, legal, strategic and family-related aspects.
The common triggers for establishing a family office include: ensuring that wealth is transferred to future generations; preserving family wealth; consolidating assets; dealing with a sudden influx of liquidity; solving family conflicts; and increasing wealth management efficiency. Family offices have also gained prominence because of wealth-holding families’ desire for greater control over their investments and fiduciary affairs, as well as lifestyle management.
Indeed, this desire for control has gained even more resonance since the 2008–09 Global Financial Crisis (GFC), as more families have taken control of their financial affairs. As wealth grows, particularly in the emerging markets, there is little doubt that family offices will play an even bigger role in the management of substantial wealth in the years ahead. Family Offices includes families who wish to separate their family wealth and assets from their operating business, and successful entrepreneurs looking at structuring liquidity gained from a highly profitable sale in order to further grow and preserve their wealth. We hope that you will make a decision to a pathway to a successful family legacy and wealth with the assistance of Generational.
