Investors and entrepreneurs always require flexible and commercial advice, and for some, learning from many different markets and geographies gives them additional advantage and opportunity.
With fast moving growth opportunities harder to find and secure, the challenges of building businesses and investing in them throw out different needs and demands. Many are watching their portfolios and liquidity situations, whilst dealing with family pressures and increased financial demands, as well as the welfare of employees and commercial relationships. This includes the pressures around decisions to make extended family loans or not.
For some business families, the current crisis has raised issues of succession, and the opportunities of transferring assets whilst valuations are low. For others, the situation has meant that the focus is on the future - the plans for the business and the family portfolios and the need for different decision makers. Here, you can put in place a family charter to explain how you wish the family to respond in the future, for example what types of investment and acquisitions you expect them to make, be it philanthropic or purely commercial in their nature; right through to how you wish the family to communicate and behave following any loss of capacity. We can help with all of this.
We are here also to support you with your capital, financing and fund raising plans as well as any recovery issues you might have, like unexpected investment losses, or insurance claims or rare situations like loans against art or other collectable assets – if you have to raise funds against your investments and assets.
