We’re Here for the Rising Generation

Working at the intersection of business and family

The Lovins Group was founded in 1992 by Dr. Alan H. Lovins on the belief that success in work and family is largely contingent on the quality of people’s relationships. Building on that principle, the Lovins Group is now an industry leader in helping wealthy families and family business owners build new relational competencies and move through critical transitions. By seeking to understand each family, their dreams for the future and their unique capabilities, we help our clients realize results that benefit all generations.

Developing personal and professional capital in families

Welcome! We invite you to explore with us how great enterprising families are learning to grow their human capital to enrich family bonds and meet business goals.

We understand that significant financial success leading to legacy wealth can create challenges for multi-generational families. Our practice is committed to harnessing the power of the family enterprise to meet those challenges, and provide opportunities for our clients to develop more trusting, honest, and open relationships.

Working together in a high-stakes atmosphere can create intense conflict in families. We believe, however, that family businesses offer extraordinary opportunities to develop the skills required to live a prosperous, meaningful, and fulfilling life in our diverse and rapidly changing society.

We encourage you to join us in our vision of developing legacy intelligence.

“To achieve their goals, families
need to find a way to engage
each other and bring people together
around a shared purpose.”
