Family Offices are one of the fastest growing investment strategies in recent years. The core of any family office is investment management and wealth preservation for future generations, but many also provide a number of other services which may include:-
- Governance, compliance and due diligence
- Legacy and succession strategies
- Asset management
- Philanthropy – planning, strategy, foundations and trusts
- Tax and estate planning
- Administrative services
- Lifestyle/Concierge services for the family
- Recruitment services for residence, plane and yacht staff
Every family office is unique, individual to each family and set up according to many varied factors and needs. Their size ranges from 1-2 employees, right up to 50+ for large or multi family offices.
What makes a family office successful?
To succeed and thrive, a Family Office requires leaders with expertise, skill and vision, along with specialist support staff and capable administrators.
All staff need to possess a high level of diplomacy and sensitivity towards the family in order to manage situations that may arise from family member interactions and relationships.
We take a long term approach to partnering with both single and multi family offices for their executive and support staff recruitment. We source candidates who will represent the family and their values, accomplish financial and other objectives and attend to and manage the lifestyle needs of the family.
Proven family office professionals are in demand and retaining them can depend heavily on culture and environment. Working with top individuals over the years, we have found that compensation (provided it is competitive and fair) is rarely the driving motivator.
