As we enter 2020, our team at Family Office Networks is pleased to be celebrating six years in business.

Much of what we do focuses on helping families grow and preserve wealth. This magazine, however, focuses on experiences that bring families closer together. During the holiday season, it’s important to realize that, in the words of Henry David Thoreau,“Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.” So, whether your family is passionate about travel, jewelry, yachting, jets, or other luxury opportunities, we hope this holiday issue will have some new ideas. As you contemplate the perfect holiday gifts for family and friends, conceptualize vacation ideas for the year ahead, and seek new ideas to make the holidays extra special, I implore you to do one more thing. Please remember those who are not as fortunate, embrace the idea that wealth is to be shared, and understand that charitable giving is the ultimate reward for your hard work.

Tips for Raising Affluent Children in the Age of Google BY PAUL & WES KARGER, CO-FOUNDERS AND MANAGING PARTNERS OF TWINFOCUS

FON MAGAZINE / HOLIDAY ISSUE 2019 / www.fonmagazine.com


Provide Ongoing Financial Education By engaging in financial education early on, parents can help their children to understand the responsibilities of wealth so that they will one day be prepared to make decisions with a full and comprehensive understanding of more complicated balance sheets.

D

ecades ago, ultra-wealthy families could shroud their children from their net worth and could be much more discreet. Of course, children would know that their parents had material wealth based on the environment in which they were raised – the size of their home(s), make/model of cars in the driveway, lavish trips on a private jet, etc. – and would understand it more as they grew older. But they likely wouldn’t know the sheer level of family wealth nor annual income until having reached adulthood. And, oftentimes, they only gained insight into the true family fortune after receiving an inheritance Today, children can easily glean info into their family’s wealth as soon as they learn how to type a search into Google. Worse yet, there’s just as much of a chance that friends, casual acquaintances or even strangers could have done the Googling and brought it up with children first. This transparency can be intimidating for families, many of whom are understandably hesitant to have discussions around wealth and would prefer sharing information with their children at their own pace. However, regardless of a family’s preference, this opacity into the family fortune is inevitably impacting the way the ultra-wealthy parent their children, the financial strategies they leverage to manage wealth, and their efforts to instill the appropriate values into the next generations. So, here are a few tips to help navigate the challenges along the way.

Introducing new elements of wealth stewardship (i.e. basic saving, principals of compounding, charitable giving, capital market theory, alternative investing, etc.) to children annually is one effective strategy to consider. For example, when your children are young, you might start giving them an allowance with an understanding that a portion must be allocated to making a donation to a charity of their choosing. In future years, you can build on their knowledge and understanding of philanthropy by introducing them to the family foundation. As children get even older, the conversation might surround Roth IRAs and compounding interest, before diving into additional topics – which could be more sensitive, confrontational or confusing – such as prenups, wills and trusts. This education is a journey and will be different for each family. However, in our extensive experience, it’s certainly best to have these conversations earlier versus later to provide your children with a better long-term education and holistic view of what the family is trying to achieve. But don’t forget to set aside dedicated time each year to make sure these conversations take place. You can even consider holding them as part of a “retreat” or family vacation where you know there will be time to talk, connect and answer questions.

Communicate Openly from an Early Age It is crucial to have conversations with children to teach them about money as early as possible. When younger generations are brought up and taught to discuss the responsibilities of wealth with ease and confidence at an early age, they’re better equipped to handle the external variables beyond a parent’s control. And ultimately, this also lays the groundwork for managing a significant inheritance – which otherwise, and without the proper advice/advisors, can be extremely overwhelming. Additionally, with parents and older generations as role models to emulate, the younger generation will be more likely to manage and treat wealth in a way that aligns with family values. Generational upbringing and the values one learns from parents, we hope, often transcends generations. When it comes to having these discussions, remember to use the resources at your disposal. Pull in your family office manager or other financial professionals you work with to help have these conversations or prepare you for them. And try to stir them up in casual settings, like family BBQs or excursions, so that children will feel more at ease and be more receptive to learning.

Prepare for the Inevitable – Inheritance The number one dilemma facing a large portion of global matriarchs and patriarchs is – “how much do we leave our children and how do we best structure their inheritance.” Hopefully, by communicating openly and honestly and after providing years of education, your children will be ready to assume the responsibilities of wealth. In addition to the guidelines put in place by family trusts, partnerships and other co-investment vehicles, consider potentially preparing a Memorandum of Understanding to provide family trustees with a soft whisper so these fiduciaries have a clear understanding of your wishes to refer to after you’re gone and to help ease potential conflicts which could arise with various family members so that there is no room for disputes. There are a number of reasonable concerns that parents have when it comes to raising affluent children responsibly at a time when children can simply Google a family name to pull information about the size of their fortune. However, by being open and honest with your children when it comes to family wealth you can provide them the necessary tools and education to be successful during the different stages of their life so that they will be equipped to continue preserving the family fortune and pass down family values for generations to come.

The Rise of

Family Office Investment Clubs BY ANDREW SCHNEIDER

F

or generations, family offices have invested in alternative investments such as real estate, private equity and venture capital as a means of growing and preserving their wealth for future generations. Historically, word of mouth and idea-sharing served as the optimal lead generator as families turned to friends and other family members to identify best in class deal flow and ultimately invest in top tier deals. Today, Family Office Investment Clubs take the concept of idea sharing a giant step forward by providing an easier way to share ideas, experiences, education and information in a confidential setting. The new Family Office Investment Clubs introduced by Family Office Networks now offer families with a typical minimum net worth of $50 million the opportunity to join clubs that reflect their areas of interest, including regional groups such as the Palm Beach Investment Club and newly launched specialty clubs for Women, Art and more. Leading investors head each Investment Club including Audra Plageman at the helm of the Women’s Investment Club, James R. Hedges, IV leading the Art Investment Club, and myself leading the charge in Palm Beach.

“I have been a part of the Palm Beach Investment Club for a while now and have found it to be a great way to get unbiased, objective advice and network with other families in a personal and professional setting. Everyone is respectful of each other’s time and is eager to share deal ideas. In fact, I’ve heard about and invested in several that have worked out well for my family office,” said a $75 million family office patriarch from the Midwest. “My next goal is to participate in new Clubs, such as art, so I can expand my knowledge base and portfolio into other areas.” In addition to the new clubs for Palm Beach, Women and Art, the line-up of Investment Clubs includes: Biotech, Boston, Canada, Cannabis, Financial Services, Harvard, Houston, Ivy League, Luxury, New York City, Real Estate, Silicon Valley, Technology and Texas. Additional Clubs will be added throughout the year and interested families are encouraged to suggest new ideas. Issuers are also invited to inquire about participating in Family Office Networks’ new Investment Clubs since families continually seek exposure to new offerings. Stay tuned for more developments, including a series of Launch Events nationwide. Audra Plageman Leading Women’s Investment Club

As an example, the Palm Beach Investment Club launched in 2018 and enjoys a strong membership base of 20-25 family offices representing families from around the country whose wealth is derived from a variety of industries, businesses and legacies. We meet or speak weekly or monthly, depending who is available at various times throughout the year. Winter months in Palm Beach are obviously better attended due to our highly seasonal population. While together, we look at investment deals we’re seeing, discuss luxury products new to the market, share stories about family issues, and talk about timely challenges related to topics such as succession, philanthropy, estate planning -- basically whatever is top of mind for Club members. We’re finding that some families elect to co-invest in private placement deals outside of the club and that trend seems to be on the upswing. Since family offices are able to do due diligence more efficiently and act more quickly than institutional investors, the lead time to get deals done is typically shorter, which members and issuers appreciate. Family Office Networks is unique in that it has the strongest distribution network of family offices seeking to allocate which is a proven competitive advantage and these new Investment Clubs bring investors together with the intent of getting deals funded and closed in a more efficient manner. Typical deals range from $20-$100 million and span various industries. The process of joining an investment club begins with online registration at https://www.familyofficemarkets.com/ investment-clubs/ which is free to qualified and fully vetted family offices who meet our strict qualifications. There are no dues or membership fees. Once approved, Investment Club members are part of a tight knit group of their peers and benefit from regular meetings, specialized publications, thought leadership, proprietary deal access, exclusive events, valuable discounts, and more.

Family Office Profile:

Hoban Family Office Please tell us about your family business? After short careers in sales and banking, my brother, Shawn Hoban, and I co-founded the first of our real estate ventures 32 years ago while in our mid-20’s before start-ups were all the rage, before Microsoft went public and before anyone had heard of Seattle icons Starbucks or Amazon. We saw an opportunity to build a property management company serving income property owners that would reflect our idea of how that should be done. That company, Coast Property Management (www. coastmgt.com) now manages over $5 billion of apartment and commercial assets throughout the Pacific NW.  Along the way, we launched other related operating businesses and began investing in the market ourselves through Coast Equity Partners (www. coastequitypartners.com  ).   Last year, we made the decision to form our own family office.

16

FON MAGAZINE / HOLIDAY ISSUE 2019 / www.fonmagazine.com

Please tell us about your family members and any special areas of interest? Shawn and I don’t know any other way to do this life but to wake up every day in an others-centered mindset and serve each other and those who want to come along on this journey with us. We married awesome women who shared that same mindset and we give most of the credit for any success we have had to the great good fortune of having Kathie (Shawn) and Margaret (Tom) in our lives.  We went to the same college (Notre Dame) and happen to both like to play basketball, spend time with our kids and keep active in our local community, so those shared interests keep us busy as well.   Our kids are at the center of our lives, with seven now representing Gen 2 of our family office and two in generation 3.   Underneath it all is our faith life.  We try hard to fulfill our sense of purpose and connection to a shared spiritual connection to all of God’s children, informed by our Catholic upbringing and educations.  


How important is philanthropy and impact investing to your family? When we formed our family office, we established a unique mission to favorably influence the lives of 1,000,000 souls. With nearly 1,000 employees and over 20,000 households under ownership or management, we feel uniquely positioned to have a positive impact on the individuals and families we serve.   Our investments in these properties offer a strong financial return but we are also inspired by our sense of responsibility to affect the lives or our residents by offering programs that serve a health and wellness impact and, in the process, strengthen their families.    Last year we launched our own targeted philanthropic program, the Pivot Point Project (https://hobanfamilyoffice.com/the-pivot-pointproject/  )  designed to help underprivileged high school seniors make their way to college 

The best: We’ve been fortunate.  We are risk averse by nature, so we don’t usually swing for the fence.   For us, singles and doubles sustained over time is how we prefer to invest.   The Villas at Portage Creek Apartments in a suburb North of Seattle is an example of one of many where we have a diversified employment base, a quality school district and overall package of on and off-site amenities that makes it a place people want to live and stay.  In our business, managing occupancy by reducing and managing turnover (residents moving out) is a key to success.  The Villas at Portage Creek and others like it in our portfolio stand up well when measuring both.  

How do you work with other family offices? We invite other family offices to co-invest in our sponsored real estate investments.  

Future goals?

What have been your best (and worst)

investments?

The worst: We bought an apartment building in the shadow of the largest Boeing plant in the Puget Sound region and six months later, on Sept 11th, terrorists hit the twin towers and Pentagon using hijacked domestic airplanes as their weapons.  One of the impacts of that event was airlines cancelling plane orders from Boeing.   We saw a very immediate impact as the Boeing employees and those tied to the supply chain living in our building were laid off and moved away.  Occupancy dropped dramatically.   We learned a lot from that experience, including never investing in an apartment building with more than 20% concentration in any one employer. 

Through our businesses, investments, philanthropic activity, our published writing and the speaking engagements we’re fortunate to secure, we are focused on favorably influencing the lives of 1,000,000 souls. Our real estate investment platform and its impact through our health and wellness program for our residents is a key element of getting there.  But it all starts with a favorable risk-adjusted return story, so we are scouring the markets we want to invest in all the time to identify the few opportunities that fit our strict underwriting criterion.

It is well known that the two designers nurture an unconditional love for Sicily, a constant and essential source of inspiration for their creations, and for the Aeolian Islands, which represent their deepest and most authentic essence. Precisely in Stromboli, in 2014, two big names in Italian and international cinema, the Oscar-winning Paolo Sorrentino and Paolo Virzì, shot a commercial for a fragrance by the famous fashion house with actor Colin Farrell.

S

ince their first runway show in Milan in 1985, the Dolce & Gabbana label has gained global prominence as one of fashion’s most iconic labels. Widely associated with glamourous, Mediterranean-style, the work of the famed designers is unsurpassed.

It’s only fitting, therefore, that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana would settle for nothing less than a stunning personal residence situated on one of the most beautiful islands of the Aeolian archipelago. Stromboli, which is a small island 3,038 feet above sea level in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the north coast of  Sicily is accessible only via helicopter and boat, thus affording maximum privacy to those seeking a true island getaway. Dolce & Gabanna’s villa offers breathtaking views of both the islet of Strombolicchio and the Iddu volcano which haunts residents and tourists with its power. The villa’s unique design represents the fusion of three Aeolian dwellings surrounded by a jagged coast of volcanic rocks and graced with lovely terraces and glorious gardens.

the property is 500 sqm including 235 sqm of indoor space. Each of the villa’s seven suites is luxuriously decorated in a different color in keeping with Dolce & Gabbana’s iconic style. Over time, the designers continued renovating the villa and furnished it with the same love and passion that they put into designing their collections. Dolce and Gabbana enjoyed summers at the villa and were known for hosting memorable parties that brought together an elite group of guests from around the world. “It is well known that the two designers nurture an unconditional love for Sicily, a constant and essential source of inspiration for their creations, and for the Aeolian Islands, which represent their deepest and most authentic essence. Precisely in Stromboli, in 2014, two big names in Italian and international cinema, the Oscar-winning Paolo Sorrentino and Paolo Virzì, shot a commercial for a fragrance by the famous fashion house with actor Colin Farrell,” said Dimitri Corti of Lionard Luxury Real Estate, which currently lists the villa for sale.

Stromboli is perhaps best known for serving as the location for the famous movie Stromboli, Land of God featuring Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman and director Roberto Rossellini. The two filmed the legendary love story on the island in the summer of 1949 after Ms. Bergman wrote a letter to Rossellini, whom she had never met. A trip to Stromboli affords visitors an opportunity to experience its many stories and indescribable beauty. And if you’re seeking to live in a destination offering an opportunity to enjoy life to its fullest the Dolce & Gabbana residence can be yours for a price of £5.8 million.

The Journey to Yacht Ownership There is Nothing Like a Good Design to Change Your Entire World BY CHARLOTTE LUER

F

amed yacht designer Patrick Knowles and his team have designed award-winning yachts for discerning clients around the world, including work with numerous shipyards in Europe and the Americas in collaboration with Burger Yachts, Christensen, Delta Marine, Feadship, ISA Shipyard, Palmer Johnson and more. Through the years, he has learned a lot about how to showcase client brands in their new yachts and his insights are particularly relevant in today’s fast paced world where families may feel rushed to make decisions before thinking through the entire process. Before embarking on yacht ownership, it’s wise to pay close heed to six important tips that will help insure smooth sailing every step of the way.

Personal Time + Availability

Patrick Knowles Yacht Designer

FON MAGAZINE / HOLIDAY ISSUE 2019 / www.fonmagazine.com

The first consideration when hiring a yacht designer should be the process of coming to terms with your personal time and availability for project involvement. Typically, yacht owners can sometimes underestimate what’s involved and when the number of hours required is not accurately calculated it leads to unnecessary stress on the part of all parties involved. Since yachts are built in a slot in a shipyard, the time factor is critical, and the process must move along on schedule. A trusted decision maker who has authority must be a part of the team in order to make such decisions on the owner’s behalf to prevent delays.


What’s the Budget? It’s vital to have a clear understanding of the budget parameters. Even billionaires have a budget and whether you’re the owner of a 300-foot or 100-foot boat, the same principles will apply. Clearly, budgets will vary widely depending on the project and family desires; however, a general rule is that one quarter of the value of the yacht will end up in the interior. Building a yacht cannot be equated to building a house. There is no comparison as costs are drastically different on a yacht due to the technicalities normally associated with such a build process. Design fees also vary so be sure to work with your designer to have a clear contractual understanding.

More families than ever before are enjoying the luxury of owning a personal yacht and experiencing a lifestyle that they likely never envisioned.

Consider the Yacht’s Use Will the yacht be used privately 100 percent of the time for family and friends or will it be chartered when not in use? This is one of the most important design considerations since yachts designed for private use are designed to match a personality (or personalities) versus being designed for the general public within the yachting demographic. As an example, the materials differ since textiles for charter must be geared to commercial application while still appearing to be the epitome of luxury. Note that an average size charter yacht is 150-175 feet and the weekly price range from $250,000-$450,000 per week, plus expenses.

Get a Grasp on Guests From inception, the yacht owner and designer will need to have a clear grasp on the number of guests that will typically be on board. Be realistic as the number of guests impacts the General Arrangement (GA) of a vessel. Regardless of size, there will always be space limitations since those involved in the project are usually eager to place dibs on space required for life saving equipment, crew and support functions, and other requirements. In the end, it is imperative that space be reserved to meet the owner’s requests. Photo Credit: Kristina Strobel 30

Entertainment Areas

The location and layout of the entertainment areas are dictated by the anticipated number of guests at on-board functions, so it is important to be realistic about whether you plan to host intimate cocktail parties or large group events. As an example, one of Knowles’ clients had a large family and many close personal friends that they expected to invite on board. This necessitated 48 settings of china and placemats, both formal and informal, representing thousands of pieces that required storage. In reality they hosted far smaller groups of guests.

Global Logistics When working with worldwide vendors and team members to design a yacht, remember to calculate your availability for meetings and calls in various time zones. When decisions need to be made, time is critical. If the designer is in the United States and the owner is in Europe, for example, it’s common for meetings to take place, sometimes last-minute, in cities other than where the owner and his team are based.

An interior befitting the size of the boat will range from 15-25 percent of its total value.

The Bottom Line More families than ever before are enjoying the luxury of owning a personal yacht and experiencing a lifestyle that they likely never envisioned. While the most expensive yacht ever built totaled $4.8 billion, today’s yachts are available at smaller price tags and represent a life-altering investment in the family’s personal experiences and memories. It’s important to enter the design process in the right frame of mind to prevent miscommunication and insure that your family and friends will navigate the seas with pleasure in the years ahead. Bon Voyage and remember that family experiences are the ties that bind.

Broadway grossed $1.8 billion last calendar year with attendance of 14.37 million. These numbers do not include touring or international productions.

Family Offices Investing in

BROADWAY

BY LISA MORRIS

FON MAGAZINE / HOLIDAY ISSUE 2019 / www.fonmagazine.com

A

nyone who has attended a family office conference in recent years has heard the term Impact Investing. Loosely defined, Impact investing refers to investments made with the intention to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact along side a financial return.  I would argue that Broadway should be considered as a small part of an impact investment portfolio. I certainly will not claim that Broadway will match or beat market rate returns, as Broadway is an extremely high-risk investment. Only one in four shows will make money.  That being said, Broadway is a much more lucrative industry than many people realize, and profoundly impactful on society and on tourism.  Broadway grossed $1.8 billion last calendar year with attendance of 14.37 million. These numbers do not include touring or international productions. A show that  loses money  on Broadway can still earn the investor a profit through  touring productions, international productions,


film/television/book rights, stock and amateur licensing, album sales, merchandise, and more! Tours are more likely  to make returns, but in most cases,  you only get invited to invest in a tour if you have invested in the original Broadway company.  Broadway investing also involves exciting perks like opening night tickets, backstage tours, and meeting a wide variety of interesting people who are all accredited investors and have other deal flow in other markets to offer each other for co-investment. There are also new New York state tax advantages and  the investment is not correlated to the market.  Former Wall Street trader Jim Freydberg invested $500,000 in  The  Phantom of the Opera.  He has earned a $15 million profit from the show so far and is fond of remarking that only his Apple stock has been a better investment. Investors in a tiny little show called The Fantasticks made 24,000% return. If you had invested in CATS,  it has already returned  6000% and keeps climbing.    Hamilton investors are  laughing all the way to the bank, and there seems to be no end in sight for returns on that show.  Wicked, Jersey Boys,  Annie, Les Miserables, Rent, Stomp,  Beautiful,  Book of Mormon, Dear Evan Hansen, Come From Away.... all of these shows have provided investors with returns that far exceed the market.   In addition to the potential financial returns, the ROI of the impact Broadway has on our society is immeasurable.  In the words of the great Arthur Miller,  “The  mission of the theater, after all, is to change, to raise the consciousness of people to their human possibilities.”  Oscar Wilde said that,  “Theatre is the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”   Theater  forces us to turn off our phones and connect to other people for a few hours.  It opens hearts, it educates and it inspires.  The show Dear Evan Hansen has not only made financial returns for Investors,  it has also  provided enormous inspiration and  arguably  even  saved the lives  of many  kids,  many  of whom who have sent emotional emails and letters to the production detailing the hope the show has provided to them.  After seeing FON MAGAZINE / HOLIDAY ISSUE 2019 / www.fonmagazine.com

The Prom, Chasten Buttigieg tweeted, “ This Show Will Save Lives.”  Where else can a 25k investment lead to thousands of young lives saved ? I call that Impact. I call that ROI. I have personally invested in many shows over the years, and I always look at it as “ philanthropy with a chance of return.”  I am happy to report that I have actually made good money with my theater investments; but even when I lose, I know that bringing a show to life and sharing it with the world is worth every penny. For those that prefer theater as pure philanthropy, here is a list of my favorite charities in the Broadway industry that are worthy of support.

Broadway For All broadwayforall.org Its mission is to transform the American stage and screen to reflect the diversity of America by training young artists from all income levels and all ethnic backgrounds in a world-class conservatory--led by professionals from the Broadway, television, and film industries-in order to shape a new generation of

artists, leaders, and advocates who are impassioned to create inclusive work for all. Broadway for All works with title 1 schools to send underprivileged kids to experience Broadway for the first time.

Theater Development Fund www.tdf.org Theatre Development Fund (TDF) is a Not-For-Profit Organization for the Performing Arts which works to make theatre affordable and accessible to all.  It provides access to low cost tickets, student education programs, sending veterans and student groups to shows, and more. 

The Actors Fund https://actorsfund.org/ The Actors Fund is a national human services organization serving all people working in the entertainment community, understanding the challenges involved in a life in the arts. Services include affordable housing, drug and alcohol counseling, emergency financial assistance, healthcare, senior care, secondary career development and more.

Bluelaces Theater Company bluelaces.org Bluelaces Theater Company is a highly interactive, multisensory theatrical experiences for people of all ages living with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental differences.  The magic of theater is for everyone, and Blue Laces makes it possible by customizing shows for people with special needs. 

Educational Theatre Foundation educationaltheatrefoundation.org Every child in America deserves theater education in their school. Sadly, a large majority of American public schools have no drama program. Drama is an essential part of team building, public speaking preparation, and creative outlet.  With Educational Theater Foundation, for just 12k a year, an entire school can have a program.  The foundation also offers scholarships and other services.

Every inch of this new car is a grand tourer with all-new Bentley design language, characterized by sharp lines sweeping the length of the car. Low, wide proportions lend the car an air of power and presence – an effect emphasized by every detail, from cut crystal-effect LED matrix headlamps to LED tail lamps that resemble illuminated red gemstones. With the four-layer insulated roof closed, the new Continental GT Convertible exudes sophistication. A choice of fabrics allows you to put your personal stamp on your car – you can even opt for a stunning new Tweed roof for a truly individual touch. The new Continental GT Convertible is perfect for navigating the world’s finest roads in comfort, exhilaration and style. The 6.0 litre Bentley 12-cylinder engine delivers the perfect fusion of power and refinement with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission for smooth, fast gear changes and the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds) and reach a top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h). While travelling at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h), the roof can still be open or closed.

Innovative technology has been developed specifically to enhance the vehicle’s experience. Accessed via the central infotainment screen or the steering wheel, digital features include Apple CarPlay®*, Satellite maps and an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot. The My Bentley app provides digital access to your car via your phone, with features such as Lock my car and My car status, which lets you check information such as fuel levels remotely. Importantly, the new Continental GT Convertible is built to make the most of the sunshine, yet it is also engineered to excel in cold wintry conditions thanks to Bentley’s new Active All-Wheel Drive. Both front seats are equipped with innovative cooling technology to keep you comfortable during the summer heat and in the winter, you’ll be happy to have heated armrests, heated steering wheel and discreet front seat neck warmers gently circulate warm air.

orsche’s new 911 Carrera S and 4S Cabriolet 4 models represent the first time ever that the German auto manufacturer has offered 443 horsepower combined with quicker top operation and optional PASM Sport Suspension.

More muscular, more powerful, more emotional – the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S and 4S Cabriolet models feature a suite of new developments and enhancements. Featuring a heated glass rear window and integrated magnesium support elements, their automatic fabric top opens and closes at speeds of up to 31 miles per hour in just 12 seconds – one second quicker than before. The design and interior combine classic styling with state-of-theart technology. The twin- turbocharged flat-six engine of the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet produces 443 horsepower thanks to optimizations both within and outside the engine. The engine is mated to a new eight- speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. The new PASM chassis with wider track widths features wheels with different diameters on the front and rear axles for the first time. Complementing the increase in engine performance, the PASM Sport Suspension featuring stiffer springs and sway bars as well as a 0.39 inch (10 mm) lower ride height is optionally available on the new 911 Carrera S and 4S Cabriolet models for the first time. Previously, it was only available for S and GTS Coupe models. The steering is more direct and the brakes are more responsive.

The 2020 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has a base MSRP of $126,100, while the 2020 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet will be offered starting at $133,400.

With the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet reaching 60 miles per hour from standstill in just 3.7 seconds, and the 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet with all-wheel drive taking 3.6 seconds, each model is 0.4 seconds quicker than its predecessor. The optional Sport Chrono Package reduces this time by a further 0.2 seconds to 3.5 seconds for the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet and 3.4 seconds for the 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet. The exterior design is completely new and emphasizes the leap in performance for this generation of 911. The rear-wheeldrive 911 Carrera S Cabriolet now shares the body with the all-wheel drive model, which is 44 millimeters wider at the rear than the previous rear-wheel drive S model. Both models are 45 millimeters wider at the front axle than before. Between the new LED headlights, a front luggage compartment lid with a pronounced recess evokes the design of the first 911 generations. The flush integration of the door handles that extend electrically when needed accentuates the tapered and smooth side contour. The rear spoiler is significantly larger than before, while a seamless, elegant light bar spans the entire width of the vehicle. Apart from the front and rear fasciae, the entire outer skin is now made of aluminum. The completely new interior is characterized by the clear and straight lines of the dashboard with recessed instruments. Alongside the central tachometer – typical for Porsche – two thin, frameless freeform displays supply information to the driver.

The 10.9-inch touchscreen of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) can be operated quickly and intuitively thanks to the new architecture. In terms of digitalization, the 911 takes the next step into the future with permanent connectivity as well as new functions and services. As standard, the PCM features online navigation and Porsche Connect Plus. The new 2020 911 is the first car in the world to feature an innovative system for recognizing significant amounts of water on the road. The Wet driving mode automatically sets the cars stability control and anti-lock brake systems up for optimal operation in wet conditions when these are detected. It also gives the driver the option of tailoring the vehicle’s drivetrain further to these adverse conditions at the touch of a button. The warning and brake assist system — also fitted as standard — detects the risk of collisions with vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists. It also initiates a warning or emergency braking if necessary. Night Vision Assist with a thermal imaging camera is optionally available for the 911 for the first time. Optional Adaptive Cruise Control comprises automatic distance control with a stop-andgo function and reversible occupant protection. The optional LED matrix headlights each have 84 LEDs and a unique fourpoint signature daytime running light that extends backwards in a three- dimensional form. Porsche has also extended the list of comfort options to include an Ionizer. This feature improves the quality of the air inside the vehicle, working in combination with the standard cabin air filter. FON MAGAZINE / HOLIDAY ISSUE 2019 / www.fonmagazine.com

LEGACY

Your Ultimate Luxury BY RENE PAEZ

S

ir Richard Branson, billionaire and founder of the Virgin Group, said, “I truly believe that ‘stuff’ really does not bring happiness. Family, friends, good health and the satisfaction that comes from making a positive difference are what really matter.” Interestingly, this view was also shared by billionaire developer, Kenneth Behring. His wealth allowed him to buy jets, hundreds of classic cars, a 30,000 square-foot home, and even the Seattle Seahawks football team. However, in his memoir Road to Purpose he documents that he still lacked a mission in life. He eventually discovered his life purpose and through his foundation provided over 1.1 million people in 155 countries with needed wheelchairs. On one occasion, he recalls helping a poverty-stricken and crippled young Vietnamese girl sit in a brand-new wheelchair. He described this experience in this way: “For the first time I could remember, I felt joy.”

FON MAGAZINE / HOLIDAY ISSUE 2019 / www.fonmagazine.com


To be clear, I am not suggesting that anyone take a vow of poverty or give up any luxury. If you are in a position to enjoy this, by all means, enjoy it! In fact, even the Judeo-Christian teachings suggest that God richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. The challenges arise when someone’s identity or self-worth or self-actualization are tied to the luxury item. In this case, my work and research suggest that no amount of luxury will ever be enough. So the question really becomes: What is the secret to finding this ultimate satisfaction and joy described above and passing this on to your next generation? My work with ubersuccessful families and individuals suggests finding your Ikigai. Ikigai is a Japanese word meaning “reason for being”. It is the source of value in one’s life and is all about finding joy, fulfillment, and balance in the daily routine of life. This balance is found at the intersection where your passions and talents converge with the things that the world needs and is willing to pay for.

Connect with your inner passion that drives you. What is it that gets you excited and wholeheartedly engaged that keeps you coming back for more? To answer this question, let’s start by defining the word “passion”. Webster defines it this way:

Passion is a strong liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object,or concept; an intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction; ardent affection; an object of desire or deep interest. The object of passion varies from person to person. For some people this can mean their faith. Billionaire David Green of Hobby Lobby is an example of his very strong evangelical conviction that drives his lifestyle and every decision he makes. In an interview he said, “you can’t have a belief system on Sunday and not live it the other six days”. This has driven him to share both his faith and wealth to become “the largest evangelical benefactor in the world,” according to Forbes magazine. For others, this can mean a cause that is dear to them. Grammy Award winner Sheryl Crowe was forever changed by her breast cancer diagnosis. This experience affected both her outlook and priorities in life. Today, she is an avid supporter of numerous cancer organizations furthering the cause for a cure.

Find your life mission. Be a part of something bigger than yourself, something enduring, something that will out last you and your family. Bill High, CEO of The Signatry, an organization that works with some of the wealthiest families in the nation to empower generosity says, “The greatest family legacies are built upon a foundation of values—a set of beliefs—that transcend the family. They live for a cause greater than themselves.” Companies have perfected this outlook via their mission statements. Google’s mission statement for example is, “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” This clearly defines the overarching value that the organization strives to provide. Families and individuals should likewise see themselves as a FON MAGAZINE / HOLIDAY ISSUE 2019 / www.fonmagazine.com

personal brand with a clearly defined value proposition. Stephen R. Covey in his book The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People suggested that individuals create their own mission statement as part of his second habit: begin with the end in mind. This will define purpose, identify areas of shared vision, and set priorities to work towards for the future. Ultimately, this will create your enduring story and allow you to say no to distractions that are not part of your core mission.

“We are all leaving a legacy, whether we like it or not. Our legacy is a combination of the way we live every day and the impact it has on our friends, our family, our community and the world, as well as how we prepare others for life without us. Leaving a legacy is a way to let others appreciate our love and our consideration for them because we took the time to plan ahead for the impact our absence would have on them.” Moreover, the same survey confirmed that 69% of survey respondents said they most want to be remembered for “the memories I’ve shared with my loved ones.” By contrast, only 9% said “career success” and a tiny 4% said “accumulated wealth.”

Focus outward, not inward. Once you have defined the value you would like to create, then your focus must turn to who you are creating this for. To be most effective and enduring, focus on the world around you. The Hebrew language has the perfect word for this: tikkun olam. Translated, it means “repair the world” and is the idea that Jews bear the responsibility not only for their own moral, spiritual, and material welfare, but also for the welfare of society at large. Your mission will define which population is dearest to you and the outcome that you expect.

So no matter how young or old you are today, go and become that person you want people to most remember. Do this by finding your Ikigai. Love freely. Pursue your passions. Discover the needs around you. Then leverage your talents to help meet those needs. However, don‘t work in isolation, but surround yourself with likeminded people who share your vision and goals. Then together you can you reap the rewards of a life well lived - a meaningful and fulfilled life - that becomes your legacy. This will be your ultimate luxury.

Reap the rewards in “currency” that matters to you. Ironically, there is a proverb that says, “He who waters will himself be watered (reaping the generosity that he has sown).” This is tied closely to another proverb that says, “A generous person will prosper.” So how does this make sense? The answer lies in the fact that when creating a legacy, the best returns are not monetary. A recent Bank of America Merrill Lynch / Age Wave survey discovered some interesting results. Among them is that the public‘s definition of a “life well lived” is more about love and less about lucre. 94% of survey respondents said the definition of a life well lived is “having friends and family that love me” followed by 75% who said it’s about “having made a positive impact on society.” Only 10% said a life well lived is defined by “accumulating a lot of wealth.” Canadian sociologist and researcher Lyndsay Green in her book entitled, The Well-Lived Life: Live With Purpose and Be Remembered says,

“Artists are increasingly working on a larger scale, incorporating monumental experiential phsyical environments, such as those envisioned by Yayoi Kusama, for instance. This year’s program expansion of Meridians will surely give attendees a meaningful set of experiences rarely found outside major museums,” Hedges said.

Beyond Boundaries

Art Collecting in the Present

By definition contemporary art refers to art that belongs to or is created in the present moment. Most of what is written and discussed on contemporary art is dedicated to the icons of the 20th Century: Picasso, Lichtenstein, Warhol as well as others who cross the boundaries such as Hirst, Koons, Kusama, Banksy. What about the art of today - the artists and artworks that are being produced that truly reflect the contemporary world?  With so much art and so many platforms it’s difficult to discern what will break through and achieve longevity.  That’s the privilege of working with today’s talent and future icons.

Money is now the lifeblood of the artworld; it is the modern form of patronage making it essential for anyone putting together an art collection or buying for investment to pay attention to the new as well as the blue-chip. Often, there is a financial and cultural impact of overcoming the fear of buying the latest artworks. Today’s substantial artworks are available to a wider audience and represent a smart investment choice whether you’re a pure investor, passionate collector, supporter of the next generation of artists, or starting a collection for the first time. 

Her instantly recognizable style, often featuring herself, has been featured by global brands and talent such as Vogue, Burberry and Katy Perry. In her own words, ‘I am trying to make a perfect photograph of a woman trying to create the perfect vision of herself ’.

Highline Art Partners will host a series of exhibitions of today’s Contemporary artists from a new location in Palm Beach, Florida beginning with a solo show by British artist Juno Calypso.

The Research & Development Tax Credit

Jill Mazur

New Changes Mean You May Now Be Able to Benefit!

T

he Research & Development Tax Credit is one of the most powerful tax incentives available to business today. It is a permanent federal tax incentive meant to stimulate innovation, technical design and manufacturing within the United States. As an added bonus, most states offer a similar tax incentive as well, including states that do not have an income tax, such as Texas. If you explored the R&D tax credit in the past, and found that you could not benefit, now may be the perfect time to explore capturing the credit as new changes mean you may now be able to benefit. The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, was enacted to protect Americans from fraud and it extended many expiring laws. The PATH Act made several changes to the R&D tax credit, all of them are great, and benefit the taxpayer. As a result of the PATH Act, the changes to the R&D tax credit are as follows: • The tax credit became permanent. After years of expiring, the credit is now permanent. This is a wonderful change enabling American businesses, and their CPAs, to adequately plan for the future. .• Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) was eliminated for companies with less that $50 Million in gross receipts. This is an amazing change for flow-thru entities because in the past, if an owner was in AMT, this would prevent them from taking advantage of the 70

FON MAGAZINE / HOLIDAY ISSUE 2019 / www.fonmagazine.com

R&D tax credit. The change now allows these companies to use the R&D credit to reduce AMT. • Start-up companies can now take advantage of the credit. This is a HUGE change. Most start-ups are in NOLs, and therefore if they are eligible to receive the R&D tax credit, they could not take advantage of the credit as the credit offsets income tax. If there is not any income tax, the benefit cannot be used. It can be carried forward for 20 years, but there would not be any immediate benefit. Now, instead of offsetting income tax, startups can offset payroll tax. The importance of a start-up being able to benefit from the R&D tax credit cannot be overstated. Most start-ups are developing new products or processes, and they should be able to benefit from the R&D tax credit, just like established businesses. A Startup is defined as a business with less than $5 million of gross receipts for the year, and no gross receipts more than five years ago. If a company meets these two criteria, they can now use the R&D tax credit to reduce a portion of their federal payroll taxes, specifically the employer’s Social Security portion of the FICA taxes. The R&D tax credit is available to almost every American Business, and if you are not claiming this most powerful incentive, you may be leaving money on the table.
