Who Are We?
21/64 Certified Advisors are individuals from a range of industries, ethnicities and countries. They share a desire and practice that helps others make more strategic decisions around their time, talent, treasure and ties through an understanding of their identity and values. 21/64 Certified Advisors aim for this transformative work to have positive impact on relationships with self and family, local community and the global world.
Across the globe, 1200 professionals hold the designation of 21/64 Certified Advisor. 21/64 Certified Advisors share a commitment to the work of individuals, families and communities who want to ignite change across generations using 21/64’s proven methodology for engaging people at the intersection of values and governance.
To attain this designation, each advisor completes the 21/64 Approach Training where they develop skills, learn frameworks and technical tools and practice leading conversation about values, vision, identity, and legacy in order to work more effectively with next-generational funders and multigenerational family enterprise clients with a particular emphasis on facilitation. The 21/64 Approach Training is specifically designed to help 21/64 Certified Advisors more comfortably engage donors and clients in important and often complicated conversations, whether they are new to the field or seasoned advisors adjusting to new modalities of engaging with clients.
Additionally, as advisors committed to ongoing learning, Certified Advisors join colleagues in a collective forum where wisdom is shared, field research and articles and innovations are offered so practices are enriched and relationships with other professionals advising families are built across the globe.
Certified Advisors hold themselves accountable to the 21/64 Principles of Practice and as a community, govern the violations of these Principles through the Peer Review Process.
