A Decade of Decisions


Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 8:15am
First time ever offered in Ireland.
“A Decade of Decisions” is a dynamic program to accelerate your thinking about the future planning for business and family success, brought to you by Family Office Exchange and Key Capital Private.
Business and Wealth owning families will face very important decisions in the next decade, as family and business leadership have to deal with the complexity of changing world economies, challenging innovations in technology, lower investment returns, and the desire of many leaders to step down from active management as they reach the next chapter. 
This special event will provide an opportunity to hear about what makes a family enterprise successful (including several case studies highlighting what successful families have learned along this journey), building the entrepreneurial mindset in the family, getting the right Governance structure, and investing in times of low returns, in addition to meeting other families like yours for sharing ideas.

FOX Introduction:
Building the Next Chapter of Your Family and Your Business

Ann Dugan, Senior Managing Director - Consulting, Family Office Exchange

When the collective activities of the family grow beyond the boundaries of the original business there arises a variety of complexities that when understood and embraced guarantee continued family and business success.  The secret is realizing that you have many parts worth preserving as well as building for future generations.  Developing strong communication and governance practices are key to building trust and capturing opportunities while believing in the strategic advantages inherent in your long-term thinking.  Attend with members of your next generation as we provide case studies of how other multi- generational families have moved from the original family business focus to building a holistic family enterprise that often includes their family office, family real estate, family foundation in support of maintaining and growing the family wealth.

Outcome/Goals Based Investing for Family Offices

Ian Kilcullen, Chief Investment Officer, Key Capital Private

Asset allocation is often cited as the main contributor to long-term returns. What tends to get less focus is the development of an approach for a family office to arrive at an appropriate asset allocation.  Key Capital believes that a goals-based approach is the best one for families to identify their desired outcomes, constraints and preferences which should drive their strategic asset allocation.  This presentation will focus on the key aspects and considerations of developing a goals-based approach to managing a family’s wealth.
