Key Takeaways

The wealth management industry requires a multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving, combining expertise in law, finance, and other domains.
Communication is the biggest challenge in preserving wealth across generations, and conflict resolution is crucial in avoiding destructive situations.
The ultra-high net worth space requires independent advice and a focus on minimizing conflicts of interest.
Technology can enable advisors to better serve clients, but manual labor and personal relationships will continue to play a significant role.


“When you start moving up the wealth chain, and people start understanding that they have enough to spend during their lifetime and their legacy going forward is what’s important to them, that’s when you start getting into a different level of discussion and framework-building.” ~ Frazer Rice

“The biggest threat to wealth isn’t bad tax planning or investments. The ecosystem of smart people to solve those problems is broad and wide. But the biggest issue is communication. And it’s amongst in between the generations.” ~ Frazer Rice

“It’s really my job and the job of the firm to help the families identify the different issues that are out there, look around corners, and look for opportunities, either for tax savings or structuring to further their goals.” ~ Frazer Rice
