Institutional Investor's Annual Family Office Wealth Conference

22 Sep 2013 - 24 Sep 2013

Laguna Beach

website

The last several years have been difficult ones for many affluent families, particularly in terms of investments and the preservation of their wealth. But in truth, many families and their executives are rethinking most aspects of the family office, from their investment objectives to their philanthropic pursuits to the structure and governance of the office itself. After all, many valuable lessons can be learned and anyone ­ affluent or not ­ can benefit from re-assessing their options and identifying new opportunities that might have emerged as a result of business no longer being done as usual.
This year¹s Family Office Wealth Conference will provide family members and executives with a forum to learn about the issues other families are grappling with and, as importantly, the strategies they¹ve employed to deal with them. Institutional Investor¹s Family Office Wealth Conference offers a forum in which a variety of perspectives, ideas, viewpoints, and solutions will be provided on these and other topics essential for affluent families to assess as they chart the best course toward their family¹s objectives.
