A comprehensive guide to giving well to family members Giving is at the core of family life--and with current law allowing up to $5,120,000 in tax-free gifts, at least through December 2012, the ultra-affluent are faced with the task of giving at perhaps largest scale in history. Beyond the tax saving and wealth management implications, giving to family members opens up a slew of thorny questions, the biggest of which is, "How do I prepare recipients of such large gifts?" With that question and others in mind, Hughes, Massenzio, and Whitaker have written The Cycle of the Gift in three main parts: "The Who of Giving," "The How of Giving," and "The What and Why of Giving." The first part focuses on the people most deeply involved in family giving, especially the recipients and givers (parents, grandparents, spouses, trustees). The second part, "The How of Giving," addresses the delicate balance of givers who want to maintain some level of control and recipients who want some level of freedom in accepting and growing their gifts. The final part, "The What and Why of Giving" describes various types of gifts, from money to business interests to values and rituals. The authors also introduce their "family bank" concept as a model that combines loans, trusts, and outright gifts. It embodies a framework and set of practices for long-term family growth. Even families without great wealth--or those who have already made large gifts to their children and grandchilren--can benefit from the human wisdom and practical advice found in The Cycle of the Gift.

"One of the greatest sources of pain within families with wealth is the belief that there are no choices. Sometimes even wealth creators who feel more than able in their business lives feel at the same time that their wealth will inevitably become a pernicious influence on their children and grandchildren. The next generation must awaken to the problem of treating financial wealth as more important than it is and therefore not developing a sense of self separate from the wealth.The book will: Explain the challenge that wealth poses to rising generations--the challenge of silence Discuss the "rising generations" and what their future might look like Share strategies that help members of the rising generation find their voices The Voice of the Rising Generation will discuss the successors of family wealth and what they can do to keep focused on human capital rather than putting too much emphasis to the role of financial wealth"--

The landmark book that changed the way exceptional families think about their heritage, their wealth, and their legacy to future generations--now revised and expanded. Every family, looking at the next generation, hopes to confer advantages that are more than just material and financial--to inculcate character and leadership, to inspire creativity and enterprise, to help all family members find and follow their individual callings, and to avoid the financial dependency and loss of initiative that can all too often be an unwanted consequence of financial success. Yet many families never succeed in realizing that vision, much less sustaining it for three, four, or five generations and beyond. James Hughes has thought deeply about these challenges, and his insights are at once practical and profound. For more than three decades, he has personally guided multiple generations of families in creating strategies to preserve their human and intellectual capital as well as their financial assets. His teachings synthesize insights from psychology, anthropology, political history, philosophy, economic theory, and the law, with examples ranging from Aristotle to cutting-edge social science theory. His ideas have been taken up by numerous exceptional families, by their advisers, and by scores of authors, practitioners, and academics who have found value in the methods he pioneered. The first edition of this book, privately published, became a word-of-mouth classic. Now, Hughes has updated and substantially expanded it with new chapters that challenge conventional notions of wealth and offer guidelines for conserving family assets in the broadest senses. Filled with tested principles and practices for family governance and joint decision making, it is a rich source of workable wisdom that family members can put into practice today, to the enduring benefit and gratitude of future generations.

Hamilton and Daniell have creatively taught us how to weave together the threads of lineage that create family legacy. They have also clarified the vision of what family leaders look like who are the master weavers of such threads. This all leads toward teaching us how to create and guide our families, and those we serve, to seven and more generations of successful, generative and flourishing lives as individuals and as family. We owe their work a deep debt of gratitude and a bow of appreciation. James (Jay) E. Hughes, Jr. Author, Family: The Compact Among Generations Mark Daniell and Sara Hamilton have written a book that will become a real reference for families wishing to establish a long-term strategy for building an enduring legacy for generations. It contains a wealth of ideas, strategy prescriptions, case histories, and anecdotes that will give the family leader and members of the “tribe” a true guide to building a system that will endure the test of time. I recommend it to families in Asia and beyond. Dr. Victor K. Fung Chairman, Li & Fung Group This is a superb book––unique and full of examples––on the vision of legacy and the role of family leadership. It is also a comprehensive guide to risk management with a special spirit for wise risk-taking. Daniell and Hamilton draw on the unique experience of the Family Office Exchange and its many hundreds of members and scores of studies to define the role of family leadership more fully and inspiringly than ever. This book makes the challenges vivid and the path clear for successful families to preserve both their wealth and their purpose. John L. Ward Principal, The Family Business Consulting Group Family Legacy and Leadership is an innovative, useful blend of theory and practice; and of the hard and soft issues that families face. It offers ideas, insights, and tools that will help families of all types find their path through change. Melissa A. Berman President & CEO, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors
