Whether it’s gathering for an annual reunion, recounting an anecdote about quirky Uncle Jim, or simply being there for one another during difficult times, family traditions are the comfort food that nourishes our most satisfying relationships. We’d like to invite you to begin a NEW and important family tradition: family wealth planning conversations.
At their best, family wealth planning conversations engage every family member, each of you contributing your talents and interests to achieving your collective and personal lifetime goals.
That’s not to say everyone must participate equally. As we work with families, one individual often emerges as the spokesperson or steward for the group. That’s fine … if the role is based on a mutual and deliberately planned arrangement. If it is instead based on unspoken assumptions or force of habit, your family wealth planning may benefit from a fresh conversation.
Even if your family is in full agreement on who is best suited to champion its interests, there’s always life’s many “what ifs.” Are others in your family adequately prepared to assume the stewardship role when and if it is required of them? Might they have unexpressed questions or concerns that are best addressed well before that day may arrive? Carving out time to hold candid conversations is where it all begins.
To kick off your family wealth planning conversation, we invite you and your family to meet with us at your convenience. (A face-to-face meeting is optimal, or we can harness technology to hold the meeting online.) We can guide you in exploring key considerations such as:
We encourage you to think outside the box on this! For example, even though some of your family members never joined us in prior meetings, we encourage you to include them at this time. You may well discover insights about one another that could strengthen both your financial conversations as well as your overall family dynamics.
As tradition suggests, we also hope you’ll consider this the first in a recurring conversation — with or without our participation, as you prefer. Regardless of who may be “in charge” of your family wealth, all of you are equally as dependent on the outcome of the efforts. Enabling a forum for everyone’s voice to be heard is another way Finley Wealth Management helps you achieve your greatest life goals, keeping your family’s wealth fresh and meaningful over time.
If you would like help with initiating your NEW family wealth planning conversations. Or, feel free to reach out to us if you’d like to get going right away.Schedule A Conversation With Us
