Wealth Psychologist, Family Wealth & Business Advisor

Families are complex ecosystems, made up of multiple stakeholders, each with their own goals, drivers and emotions. Deciding on the right strategy for a successful estate plan is hard enough, but executing the strategy is rarely as smooth as you might like. That’s why HNW families so often turn to advisors, people who can help you realise the hopes that you have for the future of your estate and legacy.

Sometimes, though, this is not enough, because families are made up of different people, across different generations, with different strengths and vulnerabilities, and each with ideas and aspirations of their own.  Without good communication and emotional intelligence, the best-laid plans can become the victims of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.  This can often lead to feelings of frustration and even anger.

It is not unusual for communication to break down between family and even business members.  They may perceive unfairness within the family dynamic or be demotivated by their role or the task ahead of them.  Such scenarios can have wider repercussions, creating significant barriers to progression, and impacting performance across all areas of your life, your family and your estate plan.

Dr. Lami is unique within the wealth management community. Specialising in the non-financial aspects of wealth across generations, she assists HNW families around the globe to find solutions to matters relating to wealth: relationships, parenting, family history, resolving communication issues, understanding the meaning of wealth and the impact it has on wealth management, wealth transfer, planning and succession. Dr Lami helps clients overcome hurdles to progression and performance, and offering practical guidance on how to educate your next generation helping them to become effective custodians of family legacy.  Often times Dr. Lami act as a facilitator in family discussions, or she helps resolve conflicts amongst members of family businesses or family offices.
