Private Multi Family Office
This field continues to evolve. In some instances SFO’s have opened their doors to other families and now manage or oversee the investment affairs of three, four or more families. They traditionally have a founding family who provide a substantial pool of the assets under management and are independently established to look after the direct interests of the families they serve.
For a multi family office to qualify to attend our meetings and receive our publications and research they need to be:
- Not for profit
- Provide a majority of their services for the family (investment, governance, reporting, philanthropy and concierge)
- Owned by one or more of the families that use them
- Executives of these offices may attend our meetings but pay a premium registration fee and are eligible to receive our publications and research.
