Family Investment Companies

Are you looking for a robust and tax-efficient way to manage intergenerational governance and succession planning?

Family investment companies, or family wealth companies, are companies which are established purely to manage the private wealth of a particular family. The shareholders of the company are family members, and the directors are usually also family members but may also include outside advisers.

A Family Investment Company can:

  • Allow for different share classes to allow different family members to have different rights to income or capital, and voting rights
  • Restrict the transfer of shares outside the family
  • Offer a higher degree of control to adult family members
