EY - Family Client Services

Family business services

Our services are geared specifically toward the factors that are essential for successful family governance:

  • Forward planning
  • Succession management
  • Conflict management

Family office services

We help business families to understand the options available in setting up a family office, how to structure their wealth and preserve it for future generations.

Whether you are deciding on a long-term investment strategy, or considering setting up a foundation, your dedicated EY contact person will help you debate all the issues from economic, tax, legal and strategic perspectives. You can also count on our support to help you choose external service providers.


To succeed for generations, family businesses need an entrepreneurial spirit that not only ensures the pioneering mind-set and values that established the business continue to flourish, but also creates future opportunities to deliver innovation and financial and social value.

The next generation is sometimes unsure that following their parents’ path is right for them. In a world full of opportunities, they have to find a balance between their own interests and dreams, and the expectations of the family.

EY NextGen Academy

The EY NextGen Academy was created to offer young people from family businesses the chance to explore how exciting, interesting and varied the entrepreneurial course can be.
