Peter Wüthrich shared his insights into what owners of wealth can do to preserve purchasing power at European Investing Summit 2012.

Thesis summary:

Only an estimated 30% of family fortunes survive the second generation, and just 20% of those make it through the third generation. One of the key reasons for this dramatic wealth deterioration is lack of advice targeted to the needs and goals of owners of large wealth. Mainstream wealth management advice focuses on the large segment of smaller, high-margin clients with shorter investment horizons. Application of the same advisory principles to the owners of large wealth results in a lack of breath, depth and long-term investment planning. As a result, owners of large wealth often take unnecessary risks which often lead to permanent loss of capital during economic crises. Download the slide presentation from Peter where he provides an overview of the challenges and proposes solutions.
