Why place so much significance on a first conversation often held in a conference room? Because the succession of financial stewardship within families has a 70 percent failure rate. But, how to preserve multi-generational wealth can be planned and taught—so the cycle can be broken.Context, framing and preparation are essential elements in ensuring smooth financial succession. Intentional, pre-inheritance experiences should be provided for heirs on a regular basis. We suggest families open conversations with heirs using a meeting structure we call “Family Alignment.” Here, families gather to discuss their purpose, the value of maintaining unity and the resources they will need to support this.
