The Good Ancestor Movement

On this episode of the show I speak with Stephanie Brobbey of The Good Ancestor Movement. 


We look at how families are redistributing their wealth by supporting regenerative projects in their (and wider) communities. 


We discuss how The Good Ancestor Movement is helping to support families who would like to take a wealth minimisation approach to their affairs rather than the “traditional” view of maximising returns and minimising tax. 


This is a fascinating listen if you are a family who feels the current approach doesn’t quite resonate with how you would like your wealth to work, and for advisers who might be looking to start an alternative conversation with your clients.

What we learn in The Good Ancestor Movement

There is a lot in this episode and Stephanie is very generous with her time and explanations of why The Good Ancestor Movement exists. Her path to becoming a founder of this organisation is an interesting one. 

Within the episode we also cover the following points: 

  • The importance of knowing your purpose
  • The role that the pandemic has played in people understanding more about what they want in life and the role their wealth can play in this.
  • What the role your values can play in redistributing wealth
  • How to get the conversation started
