What is family wealth? Is it property and capital assets alone, or something more? What matters most in managing family wealth, and what are the most effective strategies for maintaining it and conferring its advantages down through the generations? In his bestselling, Family Wealth, first published in 1997, James E. Hughes answered those questions, and in the process forever changed the way high net worth families think about passing on their heritage, their wealth, and their legacy to future generations. Now, 20 years later, in this successor volume, Hughes and coauthors Keith Whitaker and Susan E. Massenzio bring together the powerful insights, helpful tips, and timeless guidance contained in the original along with everything they've learned over the past decades about generational wealth, shared decision-making, sustainability, and purpose. Complete Family Wealth is a one-stop reference for ensuring a positive legacy for future generations. It provides practical advice for families struggling with all-too-common challenges of wealth management. But unlike other books on the subject, this one holds to the philosophy that true family wealth and its management is about more than shrewd investing, the right portfolio strategy, and tax-avoidance schemes. Every family hopes to confer advantages to future generations that are more than just material and financial. They hope to instill character and leadership, to inspire creativity and enterprise, to help all family members find and follow their individual callings, and to avoid the financial dependency and loss of initiative that often follow financial success. Unfortunately, far too many families fall short of that goal. In order to help your family avoid a similar fate, this book is firmly grounded in the principle of the "five capitals" of family wealth—namely human, intellectual, social, spiritual, and financial. From the family enterprise to family governance, philanthropy, and more, the authors explore the "what," "who," and "how" of family wealth management. And they help you gain an appreciation for the distinct roles various family members can play in growing and maintaining family wealth, and to form a clear idea of each family member's unique responsibilities in the family enterprise. Certainly, keeping your money in your family is a good thing. But it isn't all that matters. It's only one part of a greater undertaking—in many ways, it's the least important part when it comes to true human happiness. Let Complete Family Wealth show you how to preserve all of your family's assets, come what may, down through the generations.
