The Bank for Entrepreneurs

Passing your business into new hands

Passing your business into new hands


Whether you are preparing for succession or selling your business, we can help you to navigate the process and tailor a plan that reflects your priorities and particular situation.


Stepping aside can be an emotional experience. Making sure your children are ready to take on leadership roles, or selling to another party entirely, will mean big changes in the way you spend your time and focus your attention. You are also likely to be faced with a sudden influx of wealth – a welcome situation, but one that comes with its own intricacies that must be managed carefully.


Succession planning: turning the page


The process of building and sustaining generational wealth can take many forms, and each entrepreneurial family needs a plan built around its own circumstances and goals.  


With or without a buyout offer on-hand, our team of experts can help you strategise for an exit plan of your own making. We can arrange for the proper custodianship of the proceeds in the short and long term, and arrange this to match your family’s needs in everything from investment management to estate planning and philanthropy.


However you plan to transfer your wealth to the next generations, whether in the form of proceeds from a sale and new investments or custodianship of the business you have built, we can help make sure that your children and other beneficiaries have an understanding of the responsibilities they are taking on.

Certain services of the Bank for Entrepreneurs are only available for clients meeting specific eligibility criteria. In Europe, Middle East and Africa as well as in Asia Pacific this material is considered marketing material, but this is not the case in the U.S. No assurance can be given that any forecast or target can be achieved. Forecasts are based on assumptions, estimates, opinions and hypothetical models which may prove to be incorrect. Past performance is not indicative of future returns. Performance refers to a nominal value based on price gains/losses and does not take into account inflation. Inflation will have a negative impact on the purchasing power of this nominal monetary value. Depending on the current level of inflation, this may lead to a real loss in value, even if the nominal performance of the investment is positive. Investments come with risk. The value of an investment can fall as well as rise and you might not get back the amount originally invested at any point in time. Your capital may be at risk.
