Owning and managing a business can be complex. Our collaborative planning process aids in devising strategies around areas such as ownership structure, extracting capital to build personal wealth and planning for retirement – the focus is the business owner themselves.

Family Business — Multi Factor Advice Framework

Understanding family business is the combination of experience together with structured, technical know-how. We have assisted business owners for over 40 years, helping them with their complete wealth agenda, integrating across active risk assets (business) and passive risk assets (portfolio, lifestyle). We have designed a 15-factor advice framework which operates together with our suite of planning tools. This provides family clients with an integrated approach across matters such as succession, remuneration, conflict, family members in and out of the business, culture and family creed, governance and financial structure.

Family Governance & Charters

Cultural values are central to the effective operation of an organisation and represent the DNA on which a family governance framework is established and built. The family governance framework or charter brings the elements of the 15-factor framework together, which in turn provides the authority, strategy, structure, conduct and risk management parameters for the family organisation to make decisions about its wealth.
