Inheriting millions of dollars has its obvious benefits. But a new study finds that inheriting vast wealth also some less obvious downsides.
For the study, called “Next Generation Wealth,” Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management and Campden Research interviewed 53 wealthy families, most of them with net worths of $100 million or more. The main subject was how to pass wealth successfully from one generation to the next.
The survey found that managing, making and protecting wealth were important concerns for the wealthy families surveyed. Yet it was the “softer” issues that families worry most about when it comes to the impact of wealth on their children.
