A 48-year-old entrepreneur rapidly expanded a real estate development company across the Europe. The business is now valued at €200 million. Using his large network of contacts, he still generates a significant proportion of the company’s business and is key to its success.
Understandably, he is concerned about the future of the business if he should pass away.
Given that the management team doesn’t have the same connections and understanding of the business as he does, it would be difficult to find someone to take over from him. As a result, the business would face a significant loss of turnover, and his family would also see their financial security reduce.
