Support for the rising generation of family leaders

As part of the new generation of leaders in your family, your vision and voice are critical to the success of the family enterprise. Trillions of dollars are expected to transfer to the next generation within a decade. We want to ensure you’re well prepared to both sustain long-term wealth for your family and cultivate your own goals and passions – whether business or philanthropic.

Working together, we’ll create a path forward that’s hands-on, collaborative and innovative.

As the most educated, digitally native and ethnically diverse rising generation, you’ll continue to steward your family’s legacy but may do so differently. Ascent can partner with you to design a purpose-driven experience to activate your wealth.

Education to expand capabilities

We offer educational opportunities in business, estate planning, and family history and governance to help you and your family grow human capital along with wealth.

Built on leading-edge technology

Our services are enabled by customized technologies that provide you with short- and long-term insights, and support decision-making around new opportunities.
