The Family Charter is the cornerstone or foundation document of a family governance system. It is the bedrock on which everything else is built.

It is also known as a Family Constitution or agreement. It is the main document that the family use to outline their values and vision for the family business. 

Whilst rare they are gaining recognition and being adopted by many families. In this episode i explore why they are useful and how to get started with your own.
