Anthropology tells us that the human concept of ‘soul’ dates back to between 25,000 and 50,000 years ago. Since then, we have kept exploring the very essence of soul: either physically or intellectually, out of superstitious belief or for scientific exploration. Interpretations of soul find expression in ancient Chinese classics, articles and poems. For example a line from the Verses of Chu, penned by the statesman Qu Yuan during the Warring States Period, says: “Yet within my soul I burned to return; Not a moment passed, but I longed to go back.” In Han Dynasty scholar Cai Yong’s Inscription on the Tablet of Hu Shuo, Chief of Chenliu Prefecture he writes: “With my soul wandering, I have nothing to depend upon.” And in the poem Song of the Precious Sword Qiu Jin, a revolutionary in the late Qing Dynasty, says: “The emboldening song of the precious sword awakens the sleeping souls of the conquered nation.”

Now 40 years into China’s reform-and-opening-up, the soul we delve into involves cultural legacy that can influence or inspire others and intellectual factors that hold sway over a community.

It is materialistic to focus on wealth itself, distasteful to probe how it manifests itself in our lives, and an overstatement to say it gives meaning to life. But outside the confines of stereotypical views about wealth, the soul of wealth – its very essence – is aimed at giving us peace of mind and promoting social progress.

Having made their mark and done their part for social progress during the reform-and-opening-up, Chinese private entrepreneurs are now facing a succession challenge. While striving to generate and accumulate wealth, we need to put it into perspective so as to unravel the secret to successful family business succession. Therefore, the soul of wealth deserves our special attention.

Co-organized by China Family Business Review and CEIBS, the 4th China Family Business Succession Forum & CEIBS 6th China Family Heritage Forum 2017 will bring together family business owners, successors, and scholars from the US, Europe, Australia, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, as well as the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. Under the theme of “The Soul of Wealth: A Secret to Family Business Succession”, they will engage in discussions on cases based on excellent family businesses in China and beyond as they share their insights into how to pass on family spirit and culture, keep family businesses going in today’s economic landscape, and help Chinese firms gain a new foothold in the Internet era and within the context of economic globalization.
