Single Family (SFO) and Multi Family (MFO) Private family offices face challenges developing many functions in servicing its client with a holistic approach to managing the family’s wealth.
According to the Family Wealth Alliance, a Chicago-based research and consulting organization for family offices, the ten functions most often provided by a family office are: 1) Comprehensive financial planning, 2) Portfolio management, 3) Back office/Consolidated reporting, 4) Estate and wealth transfer, 5) Tax planning, preparation and compliance, 6) Risk management, 7) Trustee services, 8) Life management, 9) Family governance and education, and 10) Philanthropy. Key to sustained success is the nuclear core portfolio dialed in with the strategic initiatives of the investment strategy. A good investment policy, however, only is as good as it works for a family member’s particular circumstances, liquidity requirements, and specific investments. Thus, stress-testing these policy guidelines using various analytical tools and performing extensive due diligence and research on investments are important.
