About the Program
The purpose of this presentation is to help financial advisors answer the difficult questions of “how much do I give my family?” and “when do I tell them about my wealth?” Attendees will gain a greater understanding of the steps that families can take to healthy governance, and ways to better engage the next generation. The presenter will also discuss how to understand the differences in generations, and how those impact family communication.   An overview of how philanthropy can play a part in this process, and description of exercises that advisors can use in their practice to help with family issues,  will round out the seminar.
