Beneficiaries & Heirs

We provide communications, reputation and PR support to beneficiaries and heirs across the globe, helping them communicate their purpose, ensuring their digital profile is representative, and advising them on how to navigate difficult personal and business challenges.

As a beneficiary or heir, effective communication will be key to your success. Whether you want to build a professional career or use your standing for social good, your relationships with companies, charities, partners, the local community and others will be critical to your success.

The challenges facing beneficiaries and heirs are unique and often misunderstood. We work with beneficiaries whose wealth attracts a significant degree of public interest that needs to be carefully and strategically managed. We also work with heirs who want to build a respected reputation for themselves, which will give them independent credibility and standing outside of their family name alone. Some beneficiaries prefer to stay relatively low-profile whilst others want to take public stands on issues of importance to them.

We are your end-to-end PR and communications solution, whether it’s assisting with PR & media management, social media risk, online reputation management, media & reputation monitoring, securing strategic media coverage, securing a media interview, writing an executive profilesecuring NED roles, protecting your privacyassisting with speaking opportunities, assisting with succession or family disputes, digital risk audit, media training, writing press releases, responding to media inquiries, or countless other needs, we have you covered.


Supporting your personal and professional ambitions

We have the experience and expertise to help beneficiaries build reputations to support their professional and social ambitions, whether that’s building a career in a certain industry, operating as an investor, or making an impact on the world through philanthropy. Often a beneficiary’s profile is defined by their family history or inheritance rather than their own personal and professional successes. It is important for beneficiaries to proactively position themselves in a way that does justice to their own individual successes and aligns with their future ambitions.

A pooling point for best practice

Having worked with some of the most high-profile beneficiaries worldwide, we can provide heirs with informed guidance not only on how communications can be leveraged effectively but also how it can expose them to risk. Our advice is uniquely informed by decades of hands-on experience working with heirs and beneficiaries. We have built a catalogue of best practice and can provide beneficiaries with intelligence on how other individuals similar to themselves have solved and tackled the problems that they are facing themselves.

Proactively safeguard your reputation

We have the technical skills and PR experience to effectively manage outside interest in beneficiaries from the media, public and other stakeholders. Beneficiaries attract a large amount of public and press attention given their wealth. We have seen that many beneficiaries sadly struggle with constant criticism from the media and public on grounds that their wealth is undeserved. It is essential for heirs to put in place robust protections to safeguard their interests as well as know if they are potentially at risk of attack on social media, so preventative action can be taken quickly.
