Asian Millionaires 'Top Wealth Rankings'

Fri 24 Jun 2016 - Asian millionaires now control more wealth than those in North America, Europe and other regions, according to a report from finance firm Capgemini.Driven by China and Japan, Asia's millionaires saw their wealth jump by 10% in 2015, the firm's World Wealth Report found. Millionaires held nearly $60 trillion (£40 trillion) worldwide last year, four times higher than 30 years ago. That could rise to $100 trillion by 2025, Capgemini said. Asia's growth in high net worth individuals - defined as having $1 million in assets - came despite slowing economic growth in China and a weak Japanese economy. Capgemini found the growth in Asia was driven mainly by financial services, technology and health care industries. The region's millionaires held $17.4 trillion of wealth, compared with $16.6 trillion in North America, the report said. Europe's millionaires saw a 4.8% increase in wealth, which was led by Spain despite the country's record unemployment. The UK had the fifth highest number of high net worth individuals, although it only increased 1% to 553,000. Latin American millionaires suffered a decline in net worth of 3.7%, driven by political volatility and a turbulent stock market in Brazil. Worldwide, the wealth controlled by millionaires grew 4% last year to $58.7 trillion (£39.5 trillion). Earlier this year, Oxfam found that the richest 1% now have as much wealth as the rest of the world combined.

New Survey Shows 62% of US Family Businesses Unlikely to Remain Family Owned

Thurs 22 May 2014 - The majority of owners believe their family-run business won't remain in the family into the next generation, according to survey results released by The Alternative Board (TAB). A recent article in Harvard Business Review found that nearly 70% of family owned businesses last just a single generation. As they point out, "the low survival rate has alarming consequences." With many family offices created upon the sale of the family firm, will there be an increase in the creation of family offices if the results are to believed?

In their survey of small businesses, TAB also revealed that less than a third of owners have a succession plan for their family business. Could this lack of foresight be the reason so many families lose control of their companies as leadership shifts?
