Tamara Surratt, president and CEO of Legacy Family Office, will be a featured speaker at the Private Wealth Management Summit in Palm Beach, Florida in early June. In her presentation, Surratt will discuss challenges that many wealthy families face preparing heirs to be good stewards of the wealth they will one day inherit.
One of the threats to wealth sustainability in families is insufficient preparation of the heirs. Historically, the wealth management industry spends a lot of time and research on how to prepare the wealth for heirs. However, preparing the heirs for the wealth they will one day inherit is critical to ensuring that the legacy endures in the way that the originating generation intended.
The session Surratt is hosting is titled, “The Nuts and Bolts of Preparing the Heirs for the Money,” will include insights on:
“The transference of family wealth has long presented a challenge for families,” says Surratt. “Family dynamics – how family members interact with each other individually and with the family as a whole – is the largest single factor in the long-term success or failure of wealth transfer. I’m thrilled to be presenting on this important topic because once a family understands the factors that contribute to a successful transfer, as well as those that contribute to failure, they can begin to focus their attention and energy to effect change.”
