Generational Wealth

Foster legacies that span generations

The Rockefeller family is currently on nine generations of wealth transfer.

Succession is often on the minds of wealthy families, but typically it isn’t a priority. Managing investments, running the family business and general everyday matters often supersede any concerns about succession and wealth transition.

Succession planning often comes to the fore when there’s a change in circumstances, an event or a crisis, such as a marriage, a birth, or a death in the family. Similarly, it could result from an external event, such as a shift in the political landscape, a stock market crash or, as has been seen recently, a global health crisis.
