Family Investment Offices Consulting
What is a family investment office?
Before discussing family investment offices consulting services and what Corporate Investigation Consulting can do for you, it’s important to define some terms.
Family investment offices are highly specialized wealth management firms that serve high net-worth clientele only. They have notable differences from typical wealth management firms in that they are private and exclusively dedicated to managing finances and other related aspects of affluent families or individuals.
Ultra-rich individuals and their families have unique financial needs, among other needs, that can’t be met by traditional wealth management companies. While wealth management firms offer services like insurance, budgeting, tax services, philanthropy, and wealth transfer, the firms may not offer other related services needed by the ultra-rich i.e., charitable advice, concierge, planning and many other comprehensive services.
