DNA Testing and Families Of Wealth

Dr. Stangler is cited in the following article, "DNA Testing and Families Of Wealth", written by Francois Botha, published in Forbes on 1.31.20. She focuses on inherent medical inaccuracies in direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing and their egregious privacy violations, of special concern to families of wealth. Nonetheless, understanding one's genes holds great value. Whole genome sequencing is offered as an infinitely superior alternative, a highly regulated medical service with legal standards ensuring accuracy, safety and far better privacy.

Engaging Next-gen with Next-gen Ideas

Is “next-gen” becoming a buzz word in conversations about wealth? While it is a given that engaging next generation is necessary for families of wealth to thrive, what does that mean and how do we optimize it? Might next-gen reflect, more than age, a state of mind? Perhaps more than anything, might it reflect openness to next-gen ideas? Next-gen are the stewards of our future. We must, with great humbleness, inspire them to help us find answers to existential global crises that confront us all.
