HIGHVERN works with a number of high-net-worth families all of which have different needs and who operate through diverse governance frameworks.  Our approach is to enhance their existing arrangements by providing complimentary services in a professional and unobtrusive manner.

HIGHVERN is trusted by some of the world’s most discerning families to structure and administer their private wealth as well as to provide a wide range of complimentary services. 

Some of the families we work with already have established family offices in place whilst others are supported by a long-term advisor or employee who will often operate outside of any formal governance structure.  Some family offices will focus on wealth management and investment performance whilst others will focus on business activities or day-to-day diary management and travel. 

What is clear is that regardless of how large or small, sophisticated or formative their existing family governance is, every family will at some point need to assess how they can benefit from working with a third party professional services provider in order to obtain specialist advice, enhance governance, mitigate risk or reduce cost. 

HIGHVERN is well equipped to support families with a broad range of services that can complement their existing family offices arrangements.  Initially such services tend to focus around trust and corporate structuring for wealth preservation or business needs. However, as the relationship develops so our services can adapt depending upon client need.
