Certified Private Wealth Advisor (CPWA)
Transitioning a privately-held business from parents to children.
“For the past few years, we have been helping a client family develop and implement a plan to transition their family business. We’ve helped the family evaluate options and identify a solution that allows them to use gifting and dividend strategies to fund the ownership transition and build a more liquid estate that can then be split among all heirs upon death. Working through these aspects of the transition from a family dynamic standpoint can be a complex process.
We have also helped the family work through the steps to eventually allow the parents to phase out of the business from a practical standpoint, such as building out the management team and encouraging delegation of key decisions to the next generation. We have built a plan for how the transition will occur and a timeline for it, and will help the client and their family stick to the planned milestones.
We are helping this family not just plan but make a successful business transition and maintain family harmony. ”
