70% of affluent families lose their wealth in the second generation. 90% lose it in the third. Many factors contribute to this loss, from lack of planning to insufficient transfer of family values to gaps between the trusted family advisors.
Transitioning family wealth is a complex undertaking. Breakdowns in communication and trust, coupled with inadequately prepared heirs, can quickly unravel even the closest knit family. Families need to transfer values to the next generation, consider the family intellectual and human capital (in addition to the financial capital), and make sure there are no devastating gaps between their trusted advisors.
