Family Office Advising Workshop Chennai

Family Office Advising Workshop Chennai

A Multi-Family Office is a unique structure that is created to provide tailored wealth management solutions (from investments to philanthropy) in an integrated fashion as well as family governance and succession planning services while promoting and preserving the identity and values of the family.

Today, there is an increased demand for services that cater to the transmission of capital and entrepreneurial control to the next generation. The internationalization of assets and changing lifestyles of wealthy families has made family offices critical instruments for more professional and organized wealth management.

The establishment of a SFO is a big commitment for a family business, and there have been cases when family offices have not met the family’s expectations. Cost and Expertise remain the biggest concerns in setting up a SFO.

To address the problem of the high operating costs of a family office and lack of a qualified talent pool available, families are looking out for Multi Family Offices (MFOs), which cater to multiple families across a range of family size, wealth and maturity levels. The sheer lack of MFOs in India presents a unique opportunity for accounting firms, law firms, financial planning firms, registered investment advisors, spin off teams from private banks, brokers, wealth management platforms as well as spin off teams from investment management firms, to establish a multi-family office platform to provide independent, non-conflicted advice solutions to their clients.

AIWMI has designed this 2-day Executive Education on “Family Office Advising” to help such aspiring professionals and firms in understanding the nuances of setting up and running a successful Multi Family Office.
