What is a family office?

A family office is a private entity supported by highly skilled professionals equipped to assist a family with corporate structuring, estate planning, fiduciary services, financial administration, income tax, investment management, philanthropic endeavours, and all other financial requirements.

Family offices first emerged in the 19th century when J.P. Morgan, the New York banker, established the House of Morgan in the mid-1800s to manage his family assets. John D. Rockefeller, founder of the Standard Oil Company, established his family office in 1882.

The purpose of a family office is to grow and preserve family wealth in a safe and tax efficient manner.
