Earlier this month I attended the second annual Institute for Family Governance (IFG) conference in New York City. This year’s theme was “Governance From Strategy to Execution: Integrating Consulting, Financial, & Legal Advice”. As was true last year, at the inaugural conference, I appreciated the opportunity to hear and consider a variety of perspectives on the importance, challenges, and rewards of effective family governance. Babetta von Albertini, as Chair, and John Oden and Dennis Jaffe, as Vice-chairs, assembled an interesting group of speakers who provided a combination of practical advice and useful food for thought.
IFG states that its mission is “to help implement strong governance that endures. This is achieved through multi-disciplinary collaboration and know-how exchange among the trusted advisors and the families they serve”.
An excellent conference and I am looking forward to next year.
