  Conference Details:

As part of the Private Wealth Series, the Family Office/Private Wealth Management Forum West is Opal Financial Group's premier West Coast conference in North America for high net worth individuals and family offices. This event will explore the challenges and opportunities associated with investing in emerging markets, alternative investments, real estate, direct energy, venture capital, numerous other asset classes and will also address many of the softer issues related to the family office such as tax and regulation, asset protection, philanthropy, structuring a family office, and many more.

With today's changing landscape in the wealth industry, family offices are becoming more and more prevalent. A family office or single family office (SFO) is a private company, separate from the family business that manages investments and trusts for a single family. The company's financial capital is the family's own wealth, often accumulated over many family generations. A traditional family office is a business run by and for a single family. Its sole function is to centralize the management of a significant family fortune. Typically, these organizations employ staff to manage investments, taxes, philanthropic activities, trusts, and legal matters. The purpose of the family office is to effectively transfer established wealth across generations. The family office invests the family's money, manages all of the family's assets, and disburses payments to family members as required.

Today's new wave of generational wealth is developing at a rapid pace all over North America and in many areas of the world. We are starting to see a shift in market dominance and the direction many high net worth families are taking with their investments. With, a rise in the need to include philanthropic endeavors into a family's portfolio and making investments from an impact investing standpoint, soft issues are just as important as investment management to the family office now more than ever. Held in Napa, CA, meet many of the generation's newly structured family offices from the technology arena of Silicon Valley and Northern California's wine country. Come and join us for three days of engaging discussions on the latest investment trends and soft issues with some of the newly formed family offices in North America as well as many well established and senior family offices, private investors, money managers, and private wealth service providers from the biggest hot bed of new private wealth in North America.

Opal will end the event with a Wine Tour through the heart of beautiful wine country in which attendees will have the opportunity to sample wines from some of the vineyards in Napa Valley while networking with their peers.

This family office conference will exclusively feature dialogue driven panel discussions led by consultants and family offices. Power Point presentations are prohibited during the sessions but may be made available on our mobile app.
