Must read manual for preserving family wealth

The book is written by a lawyer who outlines how to preserve family wealth. Easy to understand, brings up new ideas you may not have thought of such as addressing substance abuse right away and the risks of perpetual trusts. If you have a Trust or are planning to create one, this book is the best I’ve read on the right way to think about it. As someone who is the beneficiary of a Trust, a grantor and a Trustee, I’m delighted to hear these ideas before I present Trusts to my children. Beyond families with wealth, this book is ideal for financial planners, lawyers, accountants or other investment professionals with high net worth clients.
