Sustaining Family Wealth

Research suggests that the odds of sustaining wealth across generations are as low as 30%. Surprising to some, poor investment performance is a fraction of the reason wealth transfers fail. In fact, 85% of the failures are contributed to poor family communication, lack of trust and unpreparedness of heirs.
