Family Office Ownership Models
Matthew Fleissig, Rob Francais, Loraine Tsavaris
Family offices come in many different shapes and sizes. At the foundation of each is its ownership model which has a tremendous impact on core business functions including culture, agility, service models, pricing, and sustainability. There are various structures in the industry, each unique, but most include some combination of shared ownership among employees, clients, and private equity investors. In this session we will hear from two industry veterans each with a unique model. We will discuss why they chose that model and the impact it has on employees, clients, and the overall business.
Engaged Healthy, Wealthy & Wise
In this session, Covie Edwards-Pitt will share takeaways from her new book, Engaged Healthy, Wealthy & Wise: lessons from inheritors and their significant others on how they have navigated love and family wealth and forged their own joint path. After conducting 50+ interviews over two years, she was blown away by the perspective of young people who are rarely asked for their views by an industry that is employed largely by their parents’ generation. What better way to reimagine our work than to connect to the perspective of the inheriting generation and learn from them how their lives have been impacted by the wealth advising strategies we so routinely recommend.

A Look at Working Women in 2023
Megan Ann Greenfield, Lucy Pérez
Working women face significant headwinds that contribute to fewer women, particularly women of color, in the C-suite. Join us in a discussion of the Women in the Workplace report, the largest study on the state of women in corporate America, by LeanIn.org and McKinsey & Company. While progress has been made on gender equality, retaining women remains a challenge. In this session we will hear concrete actions companies can take to retain and advance women and build more equitable and inclusive workplaces.
Nurturing the Next Generation of Female Advisors
Cate Luzio, Leslie Tabor, Gabrielle Bailey and Meeta Yadava
It’s no secret this industry has traditionally been dominated by men; however, the landscape is shifting. When it comes to looking towards the next generation of advisors, it will be important for firms to build and nurture an internal pipeline of diverse female leaders in their firms at every level. This session will discuss how wealth advisors have a unique opportunity to engage in mentoring and allyship to help support the growth and development of female advisors and promote diversity in the industry.
Resilient Pricing Models
Thierry Brunel, Mark Rogozinski, Rocio Ortega, Tom Livergood
This is a very challenging business. Pricing at a competitive fee level that allows each relationship to be sustainably profitable, while consistently delivering a high-level client experience, is not easy. It is critical to have a fee/business model the firm can confidently rely upon. In this session we will hear from industry veterans known for their expertise on establishing resilient pricing. They will discuss strategies for raising fees, impact of firm structure on pricing, trends impacting your fees, and ways to increase margins.

2022 Talent and Compensation Study Findings
Tom Livergood, Eric Gonzaga, Ken Cameron
We know market-calibrated compensation is critical to your talent acquisition and retention strategies (it’s why you’ve been asking us to do a family wealth compensation study for years!). But even more critical is understanding the full picture of today’s employee experience: compensation, benefits, remote work, DEI, and more. What are other family wealth firms doing to attract and retain talent – and is it working?
The 2022 Talent & Compensation Study of 92 family wealth firms captures the state of talent management and compensation in the family wealth industry. Join Tom Livergood, and our research partners at Grant Thornton for a conversation on their findings from the newly released study.
