NextGen Money

Our approach to wealth management — Wealth Regeneration® — is about more than growing financial capital. It’s just as much about helping our clients develop the human capital within their families, especially as the children age and assume more responsibility. LNWM’s NextGen team is here to provide Wealth Regeneration training, workshops and information so the next generation gains the financial skills they’ll need to support their ambitions.
