As a successful family business owner, you need a strategy for protecting your personal wealth and structuring it for growth. This is particularly the case within a global ecosystem characterised by increasing complexity and often duplicative tax regimes.
If you travel between, own assets in, or run businesses from a variety of jurisdictions, you require multijurisdictional solutions to your tax, regulatory and commercial issues. You need advisors who not only know all the rules—but also know how they will be applied to your unique situation.
While our global network of family business professionals includes tax and pension specialists, lawyers, corporate finance and investment consultants, they are all—first and foremost—business advisors to our private clients. Our network covers many major and emerging countries to provide you with a fast and efficient answer to your issues.
That means we provide innovative and robust advice in a practical and commercial way you’ll be able to understand. You don’t need to have a detailed knowledge of international tax law, finance or complex cross-border regulatory risk because we’ll explain these to you.
Here are some of the services we provide our high-net-worth family business clients:

"It is important to teach each new generation, early on, the difference between ownership and stewardship. Ownership is a right of possession. Stewardship is a fiduciary role. It is holding the institution in 'trust for' the next generation. We feel, as a family, that this institution has been passed on to us for our care and not for us to dissipate or do what we will with it for our personal gain."
"Being both the CEO and the owner makes you constantly questioned but at the same time never questioned at all."
"I think my staff appreciate the continuity in the business. They prefer working for a family business like ours. The openness of management to future plans and the 'all in it together' mentality binds staff to the company."
"One of our main competitive advantages at Componenta, a listed family business, is the speed of decision-making as we have managed to align the interests of the owners and the managers in the decision-making process."
"As a fifth generation member of a family in the yachtbuilding business, I believe that continuity is of invaluable importance. Our advanced custom yachts are luxury products but you really don't need glamour to compete successfully. I learned from my father how genuinely clients appreciate a down-to-earth approach and a long tradition of technical excellence."
