Active entrepreneurs

Being actively involved in current affairs the entrepreneurs can hardly switch from “business” to “family” capital.  Our clients choose us to improve efficiency of their family capital management and enjoy the benefits of the gained quality time for business operations..


We help quickly adjust to the rapid changes in life after family upheavals. When a family member gets an unexpected burden of the capital without having proper experience and knowledge what to do and how to manage it. Likewise, we help family members after loss of a breadwinner, divorce or moving to another country.

Former businessmen

After the sale of a company or a part of the business, most common error is to take the whole capital as a business opportunity and to start actively pursuing it. As a rule, it causes considerable losses. Business capital and family capital exhibit different level of risk tolerance.
