Our services have been designed in direct response to the needs of international families and have two clear objectives:
Stonehage Fleming have many years’ experience assisting global sports stars, providing a range of integrated financial and administrative services to ensure their long-term interests are being looked after, while they focus primarily on the success of their sporting careers.
Stonehage Fleming offers a full Automatic Exchange of Information (“AEoI”) consultancy service, encompassing both the US FATCA (“FATCA”) and OECD Common Reporting Standard (“CRS”) regimes, to client families in respect of their fiduciary structures and financial services firms including private banks, investment managers, trustees and other fiduciaries.
Family Governance and Succession is central to everything we do. As the leading International Family Office we have a duty to set the benchmark for excellence in this area. As a group with a strong Trustee heritage and a significant Trust business, we have a very real fiduciary responsibility. Just as importantly as a broader Family Office and Investment Management business, it is imperative that we de-risk our clients’ intergenerational handover by focusing on Governance and Succession.
What do we mean by Family Governance and Succession? This goes way beyond the traditional estate and tax planning. It is the process through which families articulate their Purpose, their Vision and their Values (PVV). It is the creation of a framework, with communication at its core, which enables consistent, good decision making on issues from Family Business to Family. It is shaped by, and shapes, all Four Pillars of Capital.
Our broad experience of working with families from around the world has reinforced our passionately held belief that successful intergenerational strategies must recognise all Four Pillars of Capital: Social, Intellectual, Cultural and Financial.
We work closely with the Next Generation to ensure that they too appreciate the Four Pillars of Capital, and encourage open conversations so they can share concerns and aspirations, build their networks and gain a broader perspective.
For wealthy families, trusts can be hugely advantageous planning tools – integral to intergenerational succession planning and offering asset protection and flexibility.
