For Business Owners
Build personal wealth with enterprise growth
Personal wealth is as important as enterprise growth. We help you strike a balance.
A business owner must focus on growing an enterprise and creating personal wealth at the same. Often the two can overlap and create ambiguity. The separation is essential in ensuring that the family’s needs are taken care of without forsaking the need for growing the business venture and vice versa. Having a proper structure and plan in place gives clarity to how much business risk can be taken before the family wealth starts to get compromised.
This needs dedicated financial planning and attention from the very beginning.

Most times, business owners are too close to clearly visualize the need to separate personal income from business profits. It’s not just the separation, but rather a distinct treatment is required to create wealth.
Personal and business financial separation means creating separate investment strategies. While wealth creation is the focus of personal goals; capital preservation or stable income is the focus for a business. The two cannot be put into the same bucket, and hence, it’s important to create a separate family fund and business fund when it comes to mapping suitable investment options.
Beyond this, there is also a need to evaluate the risk inherent in the business before making any investment decisions both on the personal and business portfolio. The risk of business and financial investments should be complementary rather than adding more of the same type of risk. If one ignores this aspect, the long-term balanced wealth creation will suffer.
Lastly, it’s essential to understand the financial needs for aspects such as succession planning and philanthropy, which align more with the business enterprise than the personal portfolio. The latter may focus on protecting the financial interests of the family’s future from personal income rather than business profits.
