Receiving a large financial sum as the result of a liquidity event is a wonderful thing, but it’s not always blissful. Often, it raises other worries. Unless you’ve won the lottery, the gain usually happens as the result of a life-changing event, such as selling your business, receiving an inheritance or reaching a divorce settlement. Not surprisingly, these payouts are typically accompanied by strong emotions, such as fear of change, loss of control and lack of certainty. And none of these emotions are conducive to the wise and careful management of newly acquired financial holdings.
