What must private clients consider as they transfer their wealth to the next generation and to philanthropic causes?

As the world becomes more complex, so do the financial and fiscal needs of high net-worth individuals.

Looking at the year ahead, I see our private clients needing help with an expanding range of issues – beyond the usual tax planning, advice and returns we’re on hand to help with.

In France, for instance, 120 of the most promising startups are doubling their turnover every year, according to consultancy firm Roland Berger. By contrast, companies in the CAC index are growing at just 3% a year on average.
