  • Multi-generational family sustainability
  • The family’s strategic plan and ability to fulfill its vision for the future
  • Family succession, family governance and family engagement
  • Access to the most effective and highest value trust and state tax strategies
  • Risk management of family assets, members, family employees and other family advisors
  • Also includes an assessment of the practical implications of creating, owning and managing a PFTC, including:
  1. The plusses and minuses of a PFTC in comparison to other structures
