What must private clients consider as they transfer their wealth to the next generation and to philanthropic causes?
C Hoare & Co is the UK’s oldest private bank, founded in 1672 and still family owned, with a long history of philanthropic practices across its 11 generations. This culminated in the formal appointment of a head of philanthropy in 2018, an appointment bestowed upon Rennie Hoare, one of the bank’s youngest partners.
Philanthropic activity is broadly a family affair that may involve carrying the reigns and building on the activity of previous generations, creating programmes for closeknit family units, equipping the next generation with the habits and skills they will cherish, or creating a sense of identity for large and disparate family groups.
Ultra-high net worth individuals (UHNWIs) inevitably have cross border aspects to their affairs. They own assets in and/or have connections to multiple jurisdictions around the world and as such, in advising them, an awareness of international succession law is vital.
The year 2020 will see family offices invest tactically and bolster their cyber security in the face of uncertain geopolitics, while family values are promoted to retain top talent and next gens lead the charge on digital streamlining.
