Family office principals are also not afraid to roll their sleeves up and take board positions so that they can monitor and steer the progress of their investments. Family offices who are interested in this area need to identify and specifically highlight the contribution they can make to a private business and work with their professional advisers to find and secure the opportunities. Key to success is the development of an effective governance framework which delivers effective capital spending controls, appropriate incentivisation of key employees, a succession or exit plan, institutional quality audit and financial reporting and most importantly a non-supine board. Family offices need in the due diligence process to review closely the existing capitalisation the full details table and shareholder rights and propose and negotiate a model that will enable the company to achieve the level of future growth that is required. This is a difficult process, but it is essential to buy out shareholders who no longer contribute value at a fair price and redistribute equity to reflect the contributions of the shareholders and employees who do. It is also critically important to put in place a succession plan for the founder to transition the business to the right leadership and to ensure that the assets of the family are separated from the business. We see many founder-owned businesses stuck with these issues and believe that a family office consortium with sufficient capital and drive could institute this as an investment strategy. Family offices are establishing the private equity models of the future. They are not tied to the 5-7 year fund cycle, do not need to get on the road to raise capital and can tap into their networks to source deals. They can pick up the phone to their trusted network and create and use permanent capital vehicles such as investment trusts. We are seeing many experienced dissatisfied mid-level private equity professionals who are disillusioned with the level of control the founders of the firm continue to exert and with the amounts they are paid. Family offices could develop an equity incentive plan which properly incentivises investment professionals as well as provide them with the opportunity to have input into the strategic direction of the investment firm. RIT Capital Partners PLC, originally set up by Jacob Rothschild, is a good example of what a group of family offices could do if they were to collaborate together. The purpose of wealth is under scrutiny like never before. Family offices need to be alive to this and need to demonstrate a link between wealth they administer and its wider social benefit.  This scrutiny has in part been driven by the current succession of wealth to the next generation. The next gen recipients of this wealth are typically millennials or of Generation Z and are increasingly likely to possess a values-driven mindset compared to their forebears. The opposing views of generations risks the next-gen feeling disenfranchised with this wealth, which, left unchecked, will eventually lead to its fragmentation.
