As a trust and charity lawyer in Hong Kong, I work with clients to organise and preserve their wealth. Commonly, this is the wealth that was created by affluent families over generations. Through this work, I have gained insights into the dynamics and objectives of these families, besides the management and growth of their businesses. In recent years, I have noticed that more families are turning their focus to charity foundations. For some, a family foundation keeps the multiple generations together through philanthropy. The joy of helping the less fortunate becomes a passion and provides a common interest among the family.
