A must read for anyone in the trust / PWM industry in Asia
on November 18, 2012
Anyone in Asia who is a trust creator, a beneficiary, or involved in any way with the Asian trust industry should take Hartley Goldstone and Kathy Wiseman's collection of positive stories as compulsory reading material.
In Asia, for the vast majority of family trusts, the trust creator is still alive. Read these stories to learn about the issues that beneficiaries in the third generation and beyond will have to deal with.
Second, wealthy Asian families are always looking for role models and example of what other families have done well and this book is filled from cover to cover with positive success stories.
Third, this offers a very important reminder that a trust is a relationship, not a product. It will change the way in which you think about selecting trustees and deciding on trust protectors and advisors.
Finally, the focus of this book is squarely on the well-being & success of the family system and its stories model the way to use a trust relationship to nurture mature responsible beneficiaries.
