Join TXWSW for a family office event covering the topics that keep family office executives up at night featuring Donna Trammel, Kal Grant and Attorneys with the Blum Firm.
Do Tell: The Why, When and How of Communicating Wealth
Multigenerational family meetings are a hot topic among wealthy families, but why? Ms. Donna Trammell of Bessemer Wealth Management will review key developments driving this interest, discuss how family meetings can help prepare the next generation to be good stewards of wealth, and share some practical tips and strategies for successfully navigating through family dynamics.
Preparing to Prepare a Family Foundation Investment Policy
Kal Grant, Managing Director of Tolleson Wealth Management, shares her valuable experience with the decisions families need to be made by a non-profit before putting pen to paper on an Investment Policy Statement. Communicating these decisions with your investment manager is key to a successful relationship with a critical partner in your family’s philanthropic legacy.
Squeeze, Freeze, & Burn — Highly-Effective Estate Planning
Attorneys from The Blum Firm will agree that “Squeeze, Freeze, and Burn” sounds like an odd phrase, but it is actually a term used to describe a highly-effective estate planning technique. If you have assets valued above $5 million, or if you expect to have assets valued above $5 million upon your death, then you need to know about their Squeeze, Freeze, and Burn strategy. Most family offices have done some amount of estate planning, but the family will still owe estate tax at death. Estate planners have enough estate planning tools in their tool boxes that even the wealthiest of people can avoid making the IRS a “silent partner” in their family’s wealth.
