The concept of Family Office arose in the form of the administrator of a wealthy family household. Whilst the exact structure, nature and function of the Family Office continues to evolve over the years, the need for the preservation of wealth across multiple generations; and for the management of a family’s business and personal affairs remain. With the globalization trend, rising governance standards and diverse needs of the inheritors came the expansion and evolution of the roles and responsibilities of the Family Office.
We are witnessing a steady rise in demand for Family Office services in the Asian Region as a result of the significant creation and assimilation of wealth, coupled with the increasing recognition of the Family Office concept in recent years.
