Multi-Generation Education

Multi-Generation Education

Wealth can serve as a resource for family unity and individual strength.  Confluence strives to empower individuals, strengthen the family as a whole, and effectively grow to make decisions together.  Families often wonder, how do we help the younger generation prepare for the transfer of wealth?  With coaching, educating, and mentoring at the heart of our firm, we help individuals develop the confidence and knowledge to step into new roles and responsibilities.  Customized programs can also be developed to target specific goals.

For wealthy families, the last and most significant part of educating children and grandchildren about financial matters may involve an inheritance. Because inheritances are often not just about money, the goal of financial education is not just to promote responsible financial behaviors. It may involve ensuring future generations understand the values that form the foundation of the family’s wealth.


The translation of these values across generations may help extend the family’s legacy, informing career choices or shaping philanthropic activities. In some cases, preserving values may be just as important as sustaining financial capital.


Our goal is to protect your financial future and give you confidence.
