Lessons From the Field #19:
It Takes a Team
You depend on a number of sophisticated professionals like attorneys, accountants, investment advisors and other specialists to help manage your family wealth. As you watch today’s 55 seconds, you may want to ask yourself:
No one does everything alone. It takes leadership and the ability to delegate and coordinate a team of experts to get the kind of results that will more than pay for their efforts.
We all trust specialists to deal with issues that call for expertise and experience.
When it comes to family wealth, the key players are your attorney, accountant, insurance agent, investment advisor, and banker.
