Family Wealth Management
Sao Paulo, Brazil

LIngoldLigia Ingold graduated in Business Administration at Fundação Getulio Vargas, Brazil, in 1983, and began working in the consulting area of the company that eventually became Accenture. Following in the footsteps of her family history of entrepreneurship, she dedicated the next years to creating a custom-made and delivered shirt production for executives, a very innovative concept in the pre-Internet era. She later became involved in the management of condos, house construction, and rebuilding. She eventually started a retrofit management business for corporate office buildings for investors seeking valuation in multi-owner environments. Ligia manages the Family Wealth Management, from financial portfolio to real estate. While her children were in school, she participated so intensively in Parents at Schools events that it spurred her interest in education. She is interested in two issues: searching for solutions for the gap between private and public education, and providing quality of life to the elderly – striving to understand the psychological side of aging and the meaning of life. Ligia and Roger have three girls, 18, 20, and 22, who are still living at home.
