Description

Introducing a fresh perspective on wealth management, with proven solutions to the challenges of preserving wealth and investing well in turbulent times

Family Wealth Management is coauthored by two experts in the field of private wealth - one, a former director of Bain & Company and the chairman of two of the world's largest family trusts, and the other, a CEO of a leading global family office and professor of finance from University of Toronto. The book introduces you to a unique model of wealth management that produces the desired return outcomes while being consistent with a family's overarching goals and values. The approach combines the best traditional investment and portfolio management practices with innovative new approaches designed to successfully navigate through economic climates both fair and foul. While the authors address  the critical "hard" issues of asset management, they also emphasize important "soft" issues of working with families to ensure that actions are congruent with objectives, in alignment with family governance principles and designed to help sustain and grow family wealth over multiple generations. 

The authors provide clear guidance on how to master each component. 

  • How to establish  clear family vision, values, and goals as a critical foundation to a sound wealth management strategy
  • How to establish a practical, integrated investment framework that will ensure a consistent, disciplined approach in all environments
  • How to set a long-term family wealth strategy and define an asset allocation model that will produce the desired results
  • How to draft an annual investment policy statement and refine the investment tactics based on capital markets trends and changes in the family’s circumstance
  • How to effectively monitor performance and respond to the need for change
  • How to carefully select and manage an ecosystem of experienced, trusted financial advisors who will provide critical guidance through challenging period ahead
  • How to successfully engage and educate the family to preserve and enhance the family’s financial wealth and human capital over the generations

New Actionable Guide for Managing Family Wealth Featuring Expert Financial Advice

Wealthy families who are looking to preserve and enhance the family’s financial wealth and human capital over generations can now explore new strategies for improving the management of their wealth. A new book, Family Wealth Management: Seven Imperatives for Successful Investing in the New World Order, written by private wealth experts Tom McCullough and Mark Haynes Daniell, offers seven imperatives for successful wealth management with practical examples; addresses human and financial issues in private wealth; provides recommendations for engaging and educating the family; and much more.

The authors, who have had over thirty years of experience in the private wealth field, point out that ‘shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations’ can be prevented. “It is not inevitable, but will most likely happen unless family investors and their advisors set out clear goals, develop a forward-looking family culture, and establish a strong risk management regime,” they said.

As a result of both friendship and a mutual interest in finding a better way to manage private wealth, McCullough and Daniell developed a fresh family wealth management model using seven timely principles with a step-by-step process for developing and implementing unique investment strategies. The concept is elaborated in their book, 'Family Wealth Management: Seven Imperatives for Successful Investing in the New World Order'.

"While there is no single playbook that will guarantee consistent, long-term investment success, we do believe there are some basic common elements that are crucial to successful investing,” the authors said. 

Distilling much complex material into simple, clear and applicable steps, the book includes many practical examples and checklists to help families and their advisors put the lessons into action. Further insights on key family wealth management topics are explained through more than a dozen guest essays written by respected private wealth experts and leaders of wealthy families from around the world.

More information about 'Family Wealth Management: Seven Imperatives for Successful Investing in the New World Order' is available online at www.familywealthmanagementbook.com.

The book will be available from the Wiley Online Store (www.Wiley.com), Wiley Online Library (www.onlinelibrary.wiley.com) and through all key online book retailers and the major bookstores.

The suggested retail price of print (hardcover) format is US$49.95. Digital and E-book versions are also available at US$32.99 respectively.
