What is a Family Office?

A Family Office is a private company that provides full and dedicated services to the needs of a family.  It is often used to manage a family’s wealth & assets, including managing income and expenses.

The asset size can range from a few hundred millions to billions of assets.  There are 2 common types of Family Office – Single Family Office (SFO) or Multi Family Office (MFO).

The qualifying amount is directly dependent on the fees incurred, services provided and exclusivity of the Family Office.  The cost of operating a Family Office starts from $1 – $2 Million annually.

Which are the biggest Multi Family Offices?

HSBC Private Bank, Citi Private Bank, Northern Trust … …


Can your client start a family office with $20 Million?

A Single Family Office typically manages a few hundred millions due to the high cost of running a family office.  As the value of wealth & assets fluctuate alongside changing family needs, the asset value and structure needs to be sustainable.

For smaller wealth & asset value, joining a Multi-Family Office or setting up a Private Investment Vehicle / Company (PIV / PIC) might be more sustainable in terms of cost.  The PIV / PIC can be adapted into a Family Office as wealth & asset value increases.

To run a Family Office, your clients will need to pool a team of quality professionals.

An example of a Family Office Cost Setup:

Expenses Amount ($)
CFO / Finance Manager $250,000
Chief Investment Officer / Portfolio Manager $250,000
Investment Analyst $100,000
Operations Manager $100,000
Adminstrative Staffs $100,000
Office & Insfrastructure $250,000


Example of Annual Cost of $1 Million against Assets under Management (AUM):

  • $10 Million – Annual Cost is about 10% of AUM
  • $20 Million – Annual Cost is about 5% of AUM
  • $100 Million – Annual Cost is about 1% of AUM
