Succession planning services

We help protect your assets and ensure the smooth transfer of your financial estate between generations. 

We help you plan and develop succession planning strategies

Passing on significant wealth in a considered manner is a critical part of any family’s financial strategy.

The succession planning process involves the transition of wealth or assets from one generation to the next, or from family control to a more professionalised leadership structure. 

For 50+ years we have protected, preserved and planned for our clients’ personal and family wealth. With a depth of knowledge across all aspects of life as experienced by a wealthy family, our team can provide a seamless and holistic approach to the challenges and opportunities of succession planning.

We will work with you to create a plan that solidifies your succession ambitions and ensures the right governance is in place for the smooth transfer of assets and leadership.
