With growing income and opportunities, passing the baton is on top of the mind for most families. However, the mode of succession is not well defined and, more often than not, is taken for granted and relegated to the backseat.
Transition and succession requires addressing family emotions, values, goals and business needs, a clear plan including timing, ownership and management of stakes (if companies are involved). All these variables need to be considered and managed effectively to ensure the decisions taken will affect the family and business positively for generations to come.
Considering the contingencies of life involved, it is always wise to plan sooner than later.
We understand that in the absence of a comprehensive estate planning route, the significant wealth created and accumulated by the individuals may be wasted or passed on to unintended beneficiaries or might get entangled in uncalled-for legal battles.
