  2. Use a family office: A family office can provide a wide range of services, including integrated wealth advisory, asset management and fiduciary services. This together with the capability to ensure effective structuring and tax planning will facilitate the seamless and coordinated administration of global wealth.
  3. Implement a wealth management system: Implementing a comprehensive wealth management system can help families keep track of their assets, liabilities, and cash flow, making it easier to make informed financial decisions.
  4. Utilize technology: There are a variety of financial technology (fintech) solutions available that can help simplify the complexity of wealth management. These solutions can include real time dashboards and tools for online investment management, budgeting, risk management and cash-flow planning.
  5. Communicate and educate: Regularly communicating with family members and educating them on financial matters can help ensure that everyone is aligned when it comes to managing the family's wealth. This can help reduce misunderstandings and conflicts and ensure efficient decisions in portfolio allocation. Insist on the discipline of regular reviews.
