Welcome to KMT Partners podcast sessions

At KMT Partners we are passionate about what we do. We love working with the passionate people that comprise our clients –  the founders and owners of family enterprises who have embraced the challenge of evolution and renewal. We’ve invited them to feature in our podcasts alongside leading experts from across our network. We interview new, emerging and established businesses to address these key themes, telling behind the scenes stories about their business and providing advice on meeting the challenges common to us all.

Episode 7: The guidance of a family office to build future opportunity

To be successful in a multi-generational family business, sometimes it’s a matter of a conversation with somebody who’s got a significant background in this area and having them on hand to assist you in dealing with diverse and complex scenarios. In this podcast, we talk about having this type of person available to you as part of your family office.

Episode 6: Planting a seed beyond the family enterprise

In this podcast, we discuss investing outside of the traditional family business. This may sound like an oxymoron but, just as anyone working for or in a business, we want to pay off our house or into superannuation, so that we can prepare for future needs and build wealth. The same is true for aspirations of individual family members in a family business, with the added complication of being in a family business! They may have ambition to provide a future source of wealth, interest and challenge for future generations, so investing in another type of business or industry may become an option.

Episode 5: Unpacking family business succession by aligning values

In this interview with our Managing Director and resident family business expert, Michael Fox, he talks about aligned family values as the glue that secures proper governance in a family enterprise.
