Guidance for conversations around family wealth

You want to pass on your wealth — along with your traditions, values and goals. Northern Trust’s Family Education and Governance team offers personalized advice and consultation to help you and your family make sound decisions. Our family resource library and educational programs can guide you as you create a shared vision for your wealth — to help you preserve and protect it for generations to come.

How To Discuss Wealth With Your Family

You may think that simply having a wealth plan can help you avoid wealth transfer risks. But, is it really enough? Preparing an “on paper” wealth transfer plan for your assets but failing to help your loved ones understand how to manage those assets, leaves the process of sharing wealth incomplete.
