Family planning and advisory services

The Lipman Burgon & Partners Private Office (LBPO) supports families and family offices that are custodians of generational wealth. We work with established and ascendant family offices through an integrated approach to enhancing investment outcomes, strengthening governance, and amplifying family values and purpose.

We assist clients in building early foundations to expand wealth, impact, and legacy through to those striving to optimise and streamline existing family office functions. In all cases, we bring institutional rigour to multi-asset portfolio management, governance, and administration.

We recognise wealth preservation and growth is rarely the only goal for families and family offices. We focus on ensuring family principles and ethos span generations, building long-term relationships with clients, future generations, and other professional advisory teams.

Our clients

Ascendant families

Families with $30m to $100m in investable assets seeking access to family office services that provide the structures, vehicles and processes that can drive enduring wealth.

Established family offices

New and existing family offices with $100m to $250m in investable assets seeking trusted investment partners to uplift capabilities and rigour and bring focus to their affairs.

Our focus

Multi-asset portfolio management

Lipman Burgon & Partners has a long history of managing significant and complex portfolios for successful families and family offices.

We develop customised investment programs that benefit from an institutional approach to due diligence and manager selection and contemporary asset allocation models.

Our multi-asset custody and reporting capabilities ensure the visibility and security of distributed portfolios.

Family succession and governance

Managing substantial family wealth across generations requires a clear, shared vision.

We help clients establish robust governance to guide capital to what matters most. That includes family and investment charters and policies.

This extends to engaging and educating the next generation and family stakeholders to enable stewardship and to help navigate challenging situations.
