Certification

Family Enterprises are the foundational pillars of prosperity and economic growth in most industrialized countries around the world. Today - more than at any point in history - we have a greater understanding of the nature of Family Enterprises and their impact on our economies.

Approximately one third of family entrepreneurs are planning to transition leadership of their businesses and wealth in the very near future. 90% of them expect to transition leadership to a family member. Generational transition is one of the most important challenges Family Enterprises face, and is a critical issue for which they seek strong, clear and, engaged advice.

Families add an element of continuity and long-term thinking to their businesses that many non-family enterprises lack. Becoming FEA certified will not only help you deliver the highest quality advice for business families, but it will reinforce your standing and expertise in this growing and critical sector of the business world.

The Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA) Program and Designation will reinforce your standing and expertise in this growing and critical sector of the business world and help you bring timely and thoughtful solutions to the family table. 

Be fluent in Family Enterprise.
