Emotional Governance

Caroline Garnham, CEO of GFOS

Note from Caroline:

‘Emotional Governance’

There is a saying in most countries for wealth to be dissipated in three generations; clogs to clogs, paddy fields to paddy fields and rags to rags – but there are enough exceptions to this general rule which proves this need not be.

In the early 1990’s I asked myself how a family can preserve wealth beyond the third generation. I started my research looking at how businesses thrive and started with corporate governance. I studied the Cadbury Report of Corporate Governance, the Greenbury Report of Corporate Governance, and the Combined Code of Corporate Governance. They pointed to processes, relations, roles and responsibilities and I wondered whether these principles  could be applied to family owned wealth – I coined the process ‘Family Governance’ which is widely used today.

But what does Family Governance entail?..
