Head of The Hutchinson Consultancy Michael Hutchinson has assisted families and family offices for over 40 years. That speaks to an impressive volume of experience: he previously worked for the Guinness family for over 15 years, and in a directorship for the Iveagh Trustees Limited. Families come to Hutchinson, he says, ‘probably because I am known for having been involved in assisting and helping families and family offices since the 1970s’. He enjoys the job, taking a simple pride in ‘helping’ the people behind the wealth. A good adviser explains things clearly, he says: and ‘what you in your opinion may feel is right for the family might not be what the family wants’.
