About the Forum
Under the hard glass of the "money magnifier" the unique qualitative issues and challenges of wealth in families comes to the forefront. This presentation identifies the factors predicting success or failure in the transition of family wealth and highlights some practical tools to help advisors navigate the sometimes rocky landscape. We will discuss the significance of money beliefs and associations, fundamentals of trust beneficiary communications, designing family meetings, drafting family mission statements, and other tools for advisors working with financial families.
