The unique risk and return profile of a family business influences portfolio management in similar but decidedly different ways than human capital for the mass affluent client. This presentation creates a tax-adjusted framework and illustrative case study for analyzing the role of the family business in an intelligible and intuitive way that clients can understand and wealth managers can implement.
