Rathbones Reserve for


Family life is complex. Structures need to adjust as children leave home and have families of their own. Relationships change over time. Divorce requires new strategies on both sides.

Every family is different, which is why we provide an individual level of service covering all aspects of your wealth. Our team is experienced in curating succession planning, wealth preservation and other family goals.

We will evaluate the performance of your wealth as a whole and at individual portfolio level. An independent perspective can enhance the structuring of wealth and improve asset and liability management. We can help you create an overview of your assets, apply integrated strategies and harmonise interests within the family.


Managing wealth where business and personal interests overlap presents particular challenges. We can help you prepare your financial structures ahead of a business sale and then assist you in the transition from wealth creation to preservation. For example, as you move from business owner to investor, we will recommend asset allocations to match your changing priorities and source the best investment strategy for your objectives.
Selling your business requires planning to make the most of the opportunities available. We will work with your advisers to make sure your tax planning, wealth structuring and investment strategies are robust and integrated.
We can help you turn the success of your business into financial security for your family, philanthropic involvement and your next project.
