Next Generation

You are Always Your Parents’ Next Generation

Will Your Wealth Last for Your Next Generation?

Whether it’s your parents and/or grandparents who have created the family’s wealth, your readiness as a “Nextgener” can have a meaningful impact on your family and your wealth. It also directly affects your own happiness and well-being.  Most nextgeners have serious concerns they will some day need to address, ranging from never having talked about the family’s wealth to their role in stewarding and growing the family’s wealth. 

Take our 5-question survey to quickly assess where you stand with regard to inherited wealth – your family’s future could depend on it. When you’re done, we’ll give you more info that can help you now and in the future.

Rising Generation… Adopt a 1st Generation Mindset

NextGen Survey

The primary reason that family wealth dissipates in a few generations is a breakdown in what we refer to as the business of the family (not the family business). The business of the family has to do with how a family makes decisions together, how they communicate about important topics, and how the next generation is prepared, for example. In essence, the business of the family has to do with preparing the family for their assets, versus preparing the assets for the family. This index will provide an indication of strengths and opportunities pertaining to the important aspects of the business of the family.

All responses will be kept anonymous.
