Why a family office?

 

A family office may be created to support their overall financial needs, lifestyle management, a significant liquidity event, or other purpose such as legacy planning. Every family office is as unique as the family it serves.

Family offices can provide a wide range of services, including:

  • Investment strategy and management

  • Tax planning

  • Estate planning

  • Philanthropic planning

  • Family education & multi-generational planning

  • Lifestyle management services

A family office is created to provide customized wealth management solutions by integrating all aspects of the unique family it serves while fostering the identity and values of the family.

When to create a family office?

Families who decide to start a family office typically have at least $100M in investable assets and want to: 

  • Maintain control of their assets and the decision-making process

  • Preserve their privacy

  • Benefit from collective buying power of the family’s combined assets

  • Keep the family together

  • Have a dedicated team devoted to providing key services and helping achieve long-term goals
