At Hawthorn, we understand that growing up in a family of wealth does not automatically impart the emotional or financial intelligence to manage that wealth. We also realize that, like many family leaders, you probably want to share more than material assets. You hope to pass on beliefs and values as well. Hawthorn advisors serve as guides for the next generation, helping families share knowledge and build trusting relationships. We start by capturing life stories and lessons so that family education efforts underscore your values, mission and financial goals. Our programs are age and knowledge-appropriate and cover issues ranging from investment basics to money management and family dynamics.
