Financial Engagement

The Money Conversation works with individuals, couples, families and their advisors
How you save money is a part of your financial identity

Financial engagement coaching is a customized, curated process that combines financial skills training with motivational coaching. Skills alone are not enough. Clients must discover their own intrinsic motivation to gain the financial skills they need and to use them. When they know their “why”, they can be financially functional. In a family of wealth, this is an important element of being part of the family.

Financial Advocacy

Collaborative Work with Financial and Legal Advisors

During life transitions, people can be unexpectedly thrust into positions of financial leadership. Often they are totally unprepared for this. Whether it is caused by death, divorce, generational succession, or αnother significant event, we help our clients find their bearings, connect with their advisors and take control of their financial lives.

The Money Conversation offers live events for your company or team

The Money Conversation offers structured facilitated meetings to help families clarify their purpose and values, educate their rising generation, establish and maintain family governance and create an innovative culture in which the family will thrive.
