Benefits and solutions

By understanding the whole picture, including your short and long-term objectives, we create tailored solutions to help you reach your goals.

1. Family Governance

Confidence about multi-generational stewardship, clear purpose, unity, development and preparedness of current and future generations.

Our Family Office team advises clients seeking a more sophisticated, tailored and objective approach for managing and administering their family wealth and that of future generations. Our experience has shown that full family involvement in the estate planning discussion and coaching process produces the greatest benefits. We provide solutions for our clients, ensuring a successful transition of wealth to the next generation. To do this we educate our clients children on how to be responsible owners of family wealth and assets, identify shared values and define a clear purpose for the family wealth.

While there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution because every family is unique with their own dynamics, our governance process is based on three shared yet distinct stages: Awareness, Assessment and Action.

2. Family Office Investment Service

Investment strategy and policy for all family needs, access a broader range of unique opportunities and long-term security.

William Buck’s Family Office Investment service is based on the knowledge that families and individuals of significant wealth require a more personalised solution, tailored for all stakeholders within their group. These individuals also require access to a broad range of opportunities that complement their history, legacy, existing assets and team of advisors. Our solutions are unique and built on strict diligence criteria and astute advice and implementation. Not readily available through traditional wealth management platforms, our Family Office approach encapsulates bespoke investment solutions, financial strategy, policy and governance services.
