|As part of the Private Wealth Series, the Family Office Winter Forum will explore the challenges and opportunities associated with investing in emerging markets, alternative investments, real estate, direct energy, 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.
Come and join us for a highly intense day of engaging discussions on the latest investment trends and soft issues with some of the most well established and senior Family offices, Private investors, money managers, and private wealth service providers from around the globe.
