What is family enterprise consulting?

Deloitte’s Family Enterprise Consulting team works with enterprising families across Canada, helping them build the alignment and resilience needed to flourish--as both businesses and families--across generations.  The practice draws on a proven, structured approach that melds traditional consulting experience and systems thinking with the empathetic insight needed to navigate the complexities of shared wealth and family dynamics

Family enterprises are particularly complex, facing not only business and investment decisions, but ownership succession issues, as well as family and other stakeholder relationships. Our practice takes a ‘systems’ view, working across the family, business and ownership dimensions of a family enterprise.  We work directly with the family behind the enterprise, to identify, articulate and document the family’s purpose and goals, well before considering structural or organizational changes.

We assist families with succession planning, family governance and next generation education and development. We help design family offices, develop family enterprise strategies and determine key decisions to be made at critical points.
