PaxFamilia is a financial and inheritance planning tool that has been developed by GuiSquare. GuiSquare SA was incorporated in July 2017 by Gaëtane Meurant, Guillaume de Monie and Guillaume Desclée, the three founding partners. Today the company has more than ten employees, and offers its tools for wealth management support in Belgium and Luxembourg, and soon to be in France.

In the beginning there was the end user (2017):

At the start of the project, the founders of PaxFamilia (GuiSquare SA) brought together a hundred families, clients of Family Offices or private banks, to understand the problems that they encountered in the context of their wealth management. The main feedback they collected was as follows:

  1. A lack of overview of the family wealth;

  2. Dispersion and a loss of control of the wealth information (documents, etc.);

  3. A concern for administrative management

  4. Concerns about the smooth running of the transmission of wealth (family unit and optimisation of the inheritance).

Families who shared their concerns with the founding trio were invited back a few weeks later to be presented with a proposed solution. This was the genesis of the PaxFamilia tool:

  • A family tree;

  • A consolidated view of the family wealth;

  • A digital assistant;

  • A digital vault to collect and organise wealth documentation;

  • An inventory and statement of donations;

  • Tools for financial projections and inheritance calculations

During this second presentation, all families approved the proposal made by the founders, and confirmed that PaxFamilia met their needs. The founders proposed to them that they pre-finance the development of the tool by subscribing in advance to PaxFamilia. The funds raised enabled the team to invest in the development of the solution and to have their initial turnover.

 

For 6 months, the PaxFamilia team and the hundred or so families worked together to develop a solution that could best meet the needs and problems encountered by users.

From "Founding families" to "all stakeholders in wealth management" (2018)

The first "founding family" clients of PaxFamilia, satisfied at having found and co-developed the tool that they really needed, widely publicised the fact in their close circles, and spoke of this to their advisers (bankers, family officers, etc.). The latter, in turn, asked PaxFamilia to develop a suitable solution to be able to offer PaxFamilia to their own clients.

 The company then decided to reorient its activities by focusing on a BtoB offer, aimed at professionals, while continuing to collaborate with its founding client base in order to stay closer to the reality of the end user.

Today, PaxFamilia enables Family Offices, wealth management advisers, estate planners, trustees and insurance brokers to simplify their day-to-day wealth management work, and to improve their clients' experience regarding their wealth information. PaxFamilia has also become the central tool for the wealth management of one of the largest private international banks.

Mission

PaxFamilia's mission is to develop tools to help manage, monitor and transmit wealth in order to help professionals work more efficiently. 

What fundamentally drives the PaxFamilia teams is the development of easy-to-use and effective tools in order to allow any wealth holder (be it in constitution or ready for transmission) to be able to make it grow and to share it with peace of mind.

Description

PaxFamilia enables everything related directly or indirectly to your wealth to be encoded;

  • Information about family members involved in your heritage
  • The constituent parts of the wealth (movable and immovable property, financial income, insurance, etc.)
  • Information having an impact on the succession (the matrimonial regime, the donations made, any will and testament, etc.)

Documents related to each asset are uploaded and added to the digital vault. These documents can be consulted within a flexible structure.

The platform offers a comprehensive overview of wealth and related documents. It is accessible from any place and at any time in a confidential and highly secure environment.

A series of modules enables certain operations and simulations to be carried out on the basis of the information contained in the platform: operational management, financial projections, wealth analysis reports, wealth development, estate simulator, etc.  

Finally, thanks to an intuitive layout tool, a variety of customisable reports, illustrated with graphs and tables, can be generated.
