One of the fastest growing segments of the investment world is Family Offices. They have significant amounts of money and are more interested than ever in direct investments, acquiring companies throughout the world and establishing their own investment funds.

They are most interested in purchasing privately held businesses, and they are hiring the most talented professionals both externally and internally to assist them with these acquisitions. It is essential that they acquire a controlling interest in the businesses and take a very active role over the entire process.

In Asia, some of the wealthiest families are hiring top professionals from the most prestigious hedge funds. They are starting their own investment funds and accepting outside money. This concept which started in the US and Europe is on a rapid growth plane in Asia, where there are more wealthy people than any other country. While family offices have become a significant growth area in Asia, they are competing with the existing wealth management firms , which may offer some exceptional challenges.
