Assembling Your Team
September 27, 2013
Hosted by Brian Farr and Ann Hutchins
Does the choice of financial advisors make your head spin? How do you think about assembling a team to support your financial decisions - a team that “has your back”? Join us in a conversation with Richard C. Wilson, Founder and CEO of The Family Offices Group as we talk about what to think about when you are choosing advisors. Richard works to educate wealthy families and family office professionals in the responsibilities of wealth, and to connect them to resources that will support effective and efficient management, investing and capital raising efforts. He is a tireless connector - through conferences around the world, speeches and social media, he works to demystify and improve the multigenerational view of wealth in families. Richard has a Bachelors of Business Administration from Oregon State University, an M.B.A. in Marketing from the University of Portland, and he has completed masters level research and coursework on the psychology of influence at Harvard University within their ALM department. Richard is author of The Hedge Fund Book: A Training Manual for Professionals & Capital-Raising Executives and The Family Office Book: Investing Capital for the Ultra-Affluent (Wiley Finance Series).

The goal of Money in Your Life is to give you the insight and motivation to be more effective and successful with all aspects of your personal finance. We believe money is a tool that can support deeper values of individuals, couples and families. We also know that too many options, too little time and the blizzard of modern money choices make it easy to opt-out of the whole conversation. We want you to opt-in. Money in Your Life will provoke thoughtful discussions that bring knowledge, curiosity and humor to the reality of money. Each week we will engage you with intriguing conversations to help you understand and assess how money actually operates in your life. We will present a wide variety of individuals and resources to increase clarity and expand awareness on multiple levels. Our intention is to introduce you to new ways money can serve you rather than just drive you.
