Family dynamics can be extremely complex, particularly for multigenerational families in business or with substantial wealth. Structured effectively, family assets can be preserved for future generations and protected in the event of divorce or subsequent marriages within the wider family group.
Knox House Trust UK was borne out of a single-family office, meaning we are ideally placed to understand the unique challenges and opportunities wealthy families face. As well as our technical excellence, we are acutely aware of the practicalities of managing complex structures. Our team’s professional memberships include the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP) and the Family Firm Institute (FFI), reflecting our firm’s strong investment in this field.
We can act as the single interface between the family and all its affairs to ensure that the family’s financial, personal, and philanthropic objectives are actioned with strict protocols and encompass the needs, aspirations, and concerns of family members. This may be through a formal Family Office or more informally, but always with our clients’ interests firmly at the centre.
We are highly experienced in advising and acting for a wide range of clients, all of whom have their own specific and often complex requirements. Our services are therefore wide-ranging and encompass traditional fiduciary services but our capabilities extend far beyond.
