Wealth is like a river. With care it becomes multi-generational.
As a successful and established household, you now think of your wealth as a river, capable of growing deeper and much wider as it flows downstream to the next generation.
You’ll draw water from it from time to time, but you’ll be conscious to preserve it, and allow it to grow, so that one day your children’s children are tending to it for their own grandchildren.
This is because you have the foresight to see that you no longer own the river, you are merely its steward.
Of course, you must be careful not to let your wealth, or indeed your good intentions, weaken those you love. You must ensure they stand on their own two feet, and make sure they find their own way in the world.
You conclude that wealth is not purely trans-generational, it is multi-generational. And that is a powerful realisation. So immensely powerful.
Longhurst provides a family office service, to a limited number of households, catering to an extremely specific wealth management and advisory need.
Our Legacy® service provides you with the right tools to truly understand how a river keeper must act if you are to enable your river to widen and deepen down to your children’s children, or to the causes that matter most to you.
Legacy® takes an innovative approach to wealth management, defined by the purpose of what wealth means to you.
We work with our clients to understand their evolving life and family goals so that we can produce a clearly defined list of objectives. This list then forms the foundations of the strategic plan which we collaborate on year on year.
