Family governance Building on shared values and goals

Families are always changing and evolving. They constantly have to adapt to new circumstances and react to events and crises. But successful families like that of our owner, the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, nevertheless manage to pass their wealth and values on to the next generation. Their success is underpinned by a shared understanding of the family’s values and goals, and by agreement on the principles and guidelines governing how the family, any companies it owns and any other assets should be organized. This is what is referred to as family governance. You too can benefit from the vast experience of our owner family and our specialists in this field.

Family Governance

Values for generations

Rules, rights and obligations Preserving and passing wealth down to future generations

Family governance can be used to determine which members belong to the (nuclear) family, how the family is organised and who has which rights and obligations in the family business. In many cases, inheritance, shareholding or succession mechanisms are defined. Some families with members scattered around the globe set up electronic platforms that they use for discussions and decision-making. Effective family governance provides a solid foundation for preserving the family, its businesses and its wealth over generations.
