Family advisory: helping families grow over generations

Families evolve over time. Successful families manage to pass both their wealth and values on to the next generation despite these changes. This is often thanks to strong family governance, something our owner, the Princely House of Liechtenstein, has applied for centuries.

What is family governance?

Family governance consists of jointly developed family principles and guidelines, as well as a shared understanding of its values and objectives. Family governance is used to establish rules, for example, relating to family membership, the rights and duties of family members and how the family is organized. Inheritance and succession mechanisms are often defined as part of family governance. Larger families frequently also create dedicated platforms to transparently involve all parties in discussions and decisions and foster a regular dialog within the family. Family governance thus makes an important contribution to preserving a family, its business and its assets over generations.
