Ultra-high-net-worth families are in the midst of a major handover of power. Generations are preparing to either step aside or step up and, as a result, 67% of European family offices have a succession plan in place. However, according to Campden Wealth’s European Family Office Report 2022, around half of these plans are informal. As 36% of European family offices expect their Next Gens to assume control over the coming decade, is now the time to discuss the difficult subject of succession openly?

Ultra-high-net-worth families are in the midst of a major wealth and succession transition.

Ruffer investment director Duncan MacInnes delves into the truth and fiction of the bull market.

In the classic Christmas film Miracle on 34th Street, Kris Kringle is on trial for claiming to be the real Santa Claus. His defence lawyer says, “If this court finds that there is no Santa, I ask the court to judge which is worse: a lie that draws a smile or a truth that draws a tear.”
