Multi-generational, ultra-high net-worth families are now embroiled in the greatest wealth and power transition in history. This means that education about the fundamentals of family governance is more important then ever. Well-defined communication and clear-eyed leadership is required to ensure the difficult subjects of wealth, relationships and entitlement are dealt with sensitively across all generations. 

A collection of best-in-class families share their experiences on these important issues offering extraordinary real world personal insights into the problems and solutions they have encountered and sharing valuable guidance on what has helped each of their families succeed and prosper. 

Each family showcase has an average duration of 1 hour and 20 minutes. 

The du Pont family

The du Ponts are one of the most noted family names in U.S. industrial history. For more than 200 years, their family business has been synonymous with life-changing discoveries and scientific knowhow. DuPont is an American multinational chemical company first formed in 1802 by French-American chemist and industrialist Éleuthère Irénée du Pont. The company played a vital role in the development of the state of Delaware and first arose as a major supplier of gunpowder. DuPont developed many polymers, such as Vespel, neoprene, nylon, Corian, Teflon, Mylar, Kapton, Kevlar M5 fiber, Nomex Tyvek, Sorona, Corfam and Lycra, in the 20th Century, and its scientists developed many chemicals, most notably Freon (chlorofluorocarbons), for the refrigerant industry. It also developed synthetic pigments and paints.

The Cayzer family

The Caledonia story is inextricably linked to the history and values of the family that started the business in the late 1800s, some of whom are still closely involved in running the company today. 
Originally a shipping business, Caledonia was developed by the Cayzer family over many years to become the world’s largest cargo-carrying line. Towards the end of the boom in shipping, Caledonia was converted into a broader investment-holding company in the 1980s, and then to an investment trust in 2003. 
The family’s experience, network and long-term approach to investing is a key part of the fundamental ethos of how Caledonia is run today... The values of the business derive from the values of the family. This heritage and the continuity of management and philosophy provides the stability and bedrock from which they continue to build wealth for future generations.
