global family office report

December 19, 2014

Family offices in North America are not collaborating on investments as much as originally thought. Why is the world’s largest wealth market cool on the concept, when it’s so popular in other parts of the globe?

The popular belief that family offices in North America regularly invest together has been challenged by the Global Family Office Report 2014, finding instead that they are the least likely to co-invest. 

According to the report, 61% of family offices in North America co-invested together last year, while in European offices this figure sat at 86%.

Asian family offices are more self-reliant than originally thought, but that doesn’t mean their investment targets are being hit. This self-reliance is in keeping with an increased desire for independence. 

Family offices in Asia-Pacific rely heavily on external service providers for core functions, according to the Global Family Office Report 2014, challenging a long-held stereotype that they are self-reliant. In fact, it has found that Asian offices spend roughly 20% less than those in Europe and North America. 

According to the report, family offices in Asia-Pacific spend 46% of their total budget on external services, while those in North America and Europe spend between 63% and 70%, respectively.
