We would like to congratulate Paul Mascard for the completion of the Family Enterprise Advisor (‘FEA’) designation which is awarded by the Family Enterprise Exchange (‘FEX’).
The industry leading FEA designation was created through the partnership of the Sauder School of Business at U.B.C, the University of Alberta Ivey Business School and FEX. This yearlong program consisted of in-class education, an extensive case study which involved a multi-generational family enterprise and concluded with a written and oral exam. The FEA program is not a financial course as it does not focus on the markets or investing, but on the rarely spoken human capital side of the equation. It is the human capital of a family, which if well advised and tended to, can overcome the dreaded “shirtsleeves-to-shirtsleeves in 3 generations” axiom. Important topics covered included study on family dynamics, strategy, governance and communication.
At Northland Wealth we believe that the continued education of our professionals is necessary to provide the families we serve with the highest levels of advice; not only today, but in the future.
Congratulations Paul on this achievement!
