“Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint; but he that keeps the Torah, happy is he”1
The raison d’etre (“reason
for being”) of Dan El can be clearly understood from
both its origin and vision.
Dan El Private Estates
is built upon a tradition established in 1959 by Peter and
Robina Daniels of providing a heritage for future generations.
This tradition formally embraced by their second son Graham,
has been fashioned into what is today the Dan El global network.
“And be doers of the Word, and not hearers only; and do not deceive yourselves”2
Our approach to private estate planning
doesn’t end with advocacy..... rather that’s where
it begins. It is with much research and dedication that we create
concepts, services and products, that are recognised as unique
in today’s marketplace.... many being world firsts.
“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.”3
The Daniels’ family name, from which “Dan El” is the linguistic root, has an international reputation of credibility and integrity that has been uncompromisingly guarded and preserved since our journey began in 1959. As it takes many years to earn such favour and trust and only a few unguarded seconds to loose it, the longer one is able to maintain a sound reputation the more valuable it becomes, and the less likely one is to consider a hasty exchange. Our favoured name around the globe in the business, secular and religious world is our greatest asset..... and cannot be purchased. Traditional testimony is that this has granted our Clients much comfort.
At Dan El we provide our Clients with a portal for private tuition
on the application of powerful yet conservative strategic principles
and disciplines necessary to achieve their private estate objectives. Our map and compass for this journey has been the wisdom found in the pages of the ancient Hebrew and Aramaic scriptures, and many of the benefits our Clients enjoy have their roots in these ancient oracles.
Today Dan El draws from the deep well of private international
relationships fostered in the shifting sands of business over
the last 55 years. This seasoning role of time, coupled with
the refined luxury of scriptural guidance produces a level of
direction, experience and global reach that is quietly recognised
by the discerning. On this time tested canvas is painted Dan El
Private Estates which we present to assist in the “creation,
protection, enjoyment and transfer to the next generation,
of ones private estate”, as “ an inheritance to ones children’s
In the prudent planning of the Dan El private estate, emphasis is weighed in three distinct portions.
Firstly.... on the tuition and guidance of our Clients.
Secondly.... on the application of prudent international diversification to ensure a compass of protection.
Thirdly.... on the benefits of private
gold and silver holdings, to a secure private estate.
An estate in the broadest sense encompasses all of ones possessions.
Certainly tangible wealth is an important component, but intellectual
property, physical wellbeing, and favourable relationships must
also be considered and permitted to grow if balance is to be
“And Yeshua grew in his stature and in his wisdom and in favour with Elohim and man.”4
The distinguishing feature of the consultancy and fiduciary service of Dan El is that our numerous family involvements around the world demand our active presence in the market place every day, often on an equal footing to many of our Clients. We know what our Clients need because we frequently discover the need first. Being on both sides of the business exchange grants Dan El a position of privilege over those who can only operate on the advisory side of commerce.
“.... that we may dwell in a quiet and tranquil habitation with all reverence for Elohim and with purity.”5
The Clients of Dan El are often quiet achievers, conservative,
and discrete. In recognising that our Clients’ destiny
and their needs are as distinct and unique as their fingerprints,
Dan El abstains
from participating in the “wide road” market
approach to estate planning, but sees wisdom in the security
and commercial tranquillity of a path less travelled.
At Dan El we rarely accept a public company, government body,
incorporation or institution as a client. Rather our focus is
on equipping select individuals to confident and competent independence,
through the application of prudent time tested principles in
the Creation, Protection, Enjoyment and Transfer to the next
generation, of a secure private estate.
“And the things you have heard from me through many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men who are competent to teach others also.”6
“Ultimately it’s only
when our Clients feel they no longer require our services,
that we can claim another success story."
