Miami, FL: Closely-held businesses in Latin America face unique challenges. At issue are not only standard issues such as corporate governance and evaluation of growth opportunities, but also family governance and preservation of wealth. Generational tensions and questions of succession can add to the complexity.
The Aresty Institute of Executive Education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania has partnered with Family Business and Office School®, a pioneer in providing education, workshops, and forums to high-net-worth families, individuals, and wealth advisors in Latin America and Miami, to help family members and their advisors and board members face these crucial challenges.
A suite of four LATAM programs leverages the strengths of Wharton’s expert faculty and offers the latest research, insights, and best practices in governance, growth, and wealth management:
“The families and their advisors who attend LATAM programs have unique issues that, until now, they have faced alone,” says Christopher Geczy, a finance professor who teaches in three of the LATAM programs who is also the Academic Director of the Wharton Wealth Management Initiative. “These highly complementary programs give them rapid exposure to best practices and valuable networking opportunity. Peers in the program share current challenges and learn from one another. They leave better able to run their businesses, make decisions, and preserve family wealth and harmony across generations.”
All LATAM programs are held at the the Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove in Miami, Florida. For more information about the programs or to enroll please contact Hernan Fuentes, Family Business and Office School® at +1.786.307.1015 or by email.
