The Ten Domains Model One Year Later: Deepening the Conversation

One year ago, the Ten Domains Model was rolled out as the first major initiative of the UHNW Institute. It organized the area of UHNW family wealth in a ground -breaking way after months of collaboration and fine-tuning. The past year has focused on developing and disseminating the model, supported by the domain chairs and a broad marketing campaign bringing attention to the Institute. This event draws together the collective wisdom of the Institute’s faculty, leadership, and members to learn more about, discuss, and expand on the Ten Domains model through active discussion and engagement. Ideas, questions, concerns, and opportunities will all be explored. The event will truly fulfil one of the missions of the Institute – to be a think tank engaged in learning and leadership.



The 10 Domains of Family Wealth represents an important conceptual framework for understanding the issues facing ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) families, including the skills required to serve their needs. The 10 Domains model recognizes that comprehensive UHNW wealth management extends far beyond the realm of investments, taxation, risk management, and legal matters alone. The model highlights the full range of skills and services needed to help financially successful families prosper. It recognizes the contributions of family governance, leadership development, family dynamics, development of the next generation, health matters, and philanthropy in implementing and transferring wealth across generations. Importantly, the model underscores that the competencies in the advisor-client relationship are a central, unifying domain integrating all the other factors.
