Setting up a private wealth and/or family office practice can be challenging,
It requires a deep profound interest and dedication to ongoing learning in an increasingly complex (data) world and really putting the interests of your clients before anything else.
However, setting up a practice or indeed just working (in a job) in wealth service can also be incredibly rewarding and satisfying.
Having practiced in the field of private banking, financial, wealth management and accounting for over 30 years, we set up our firm in 2001.
Initially, it was a standard accounting practice providing consulting and data management solutions to private banks, trusts, funds, and others.
After a few months, we acquired our first major private client! who was an ultra-high net worth owner of a private bank who wanted us to set up a control-driven (not investment) single-family office?
Afterwards, we grew and understood what the family office world was all about and how...

After over 40 years in the rat-race, I am enjoying living my “life”. So here are a few things to you to reflect on:
Have an entrepreneur mind even in employment.
Be aware that the race is against yourself! Always search for the truth. Listen to understand! Never spend more than you earn.
Have these 3 principles whether you are working or in employment:
1. During the ‘earnings’ part of your life, save the maximum realistically possible the minimum should be 20%.
Learn and understand diversification.
Appreciate, learn, and practice mediation.
Always invest in yourself: never stop learning, studying, and educating yourself.
Do not put your destiny in the hands of...
"50% of what we teach you over the next five years will be wrong, or inaccurate. Sadly, we don't know which 50%." This is a phrase that often gets aired at the welcoming lecture to medical schools.
It is true also of what our education system has become. It is not entirely in tune with the reality of the job market. However, what we have is still a must for every child for their primary and secondary educations.
It is post-secondary where it is becoming more complicated as technology is dramatically shifting the order of things as we knew it; much faster.
If we consider the jobs market that we want to prepare our children, then we need to understand with them, how technology is transforming the business landscape.
With acceleration in technology, the transformation to the business landscape is major and affects everyone; though some changes are minor others are at a reasonably large scale. In some sectors, the whole process of business has changed, and in other cases, entire...
It is not a simple question.
Without my secondary education, I would not have got the tertiary education and membership of the Institute of Chartered Accountants. Over the years, I continued learning and never stopped asking what the persons I reported to expect from me. I reached the position of CFO in a Private Bank.
Education in all its form has taken billions out of poverty and will continue to do so. Whether it be primary, secondary, or university, getting a certificate, a diploma, or a degree is essential.
Besides the educational background, more employers nowadays are looking at a person's experience. "A survey by recruitment specialists Universum* found that 58% of leading employers value work experience among graduates more than grades or the name of their university."
Many degrees now include a work experience part while at the other end, many colleges now offer "work and life experience" degree programs. "An accredited life experience based college degree is conferred as...
Mass education will continue to do well for most for many years to come. It is what is taught and how to teach that is creating a gap about finding a satisfying way of being financially independent and staying that way in a rapidly changing world.
More experts are now repeating that learning new skills involve unlearning old skills and habits that most of us have been "constructed" to be.
The acceleration of digital transformation means that the goalposts continue to be moved, and the problem is that we do not even know what the medium to long term future holds for any of us.
So, what to encourage our children and ourselves to learn and unlearn to be ready: here are five habits that William Treseder has shared with us. With his permission, let me share these with you. See if you agree:
1. Filling up the day with time-bound activities.
Just class in school was 45 minutes, or 60 minutes, we build most meetings for the same duration.
Does our work really into easily trackable periods?...
