Clients - Families on Engage
print icon

Families is the highest entity within Engage that represents a summary entity that sits on top of the Relationship hierarchy. It is simply used to relate and aggregate multiple Relationships together. Families will include Relationships and Contacts, allowing users to see the overall highest level of connections among all records.

For example, this can be helpful if a client departs. The Family entity will help to identify the potential impact of the client/account/portfolio/etc. departure and how it relates to other connected Relationships.

Recommended Use Cases

This is a relatively light entity from a functionality point of view.  Because of this, the recommended use case is simply to relate multiple households to each other.  Why does anyone want to do this?

  • Denoting aggregated billing for better AUM fee breaks.
  • Share of multi-generational wallet
  • Relationship context (example: Tim and Jill are children of and beneficiaries to Bob's source of wealth)
  • Internal notes that pertain to the family
