Very useful not only for confirming our own research and life experiences, but understanding client concerns and family concerns about money, how we all deal with the presence or absence of same, and how to perhaps develop our own ideas about how to advise clients, friends and family.

This was an excellent read and offered very comprehensive insight on Family Office and the UHNW capital sector. Unlike most financially oriented books that tend to be mundane or too technical, The Family Office Book balanced fundamental anecdotal concepts with financial theories and historical narratives relating to the FO industry. It helps investment and asset managers understand the considerations of a UNHW family and also provides an excellent overview for the ultra-affluent when trying to understand the issues they need to be aware of when considering to form a family office.

buy and read this book to reinforce your gut feeling that FO's and MFO's are wealth preservation/creation/education vehicles, ready to traverse through the landscape of financial services. While many references are made to a specific companies' website, they are not invasive...the authors aim is to further educate and assist. I very much enjoyed the ability to read the many 1 on1 interviews and will probably refer back for some further video and audio data mining. Enjoy!

Richard Wilson is right on target with his analysis of the current state of the family office market and the growth opportunities for those organizations that support the industry. As family offices shift further into the direct investing model, Richard pinpoints the challenges that family offices will meet. This is a "must read".

Fantastic book...truly fantastic.

The Family Office industry operates out of the spotlight quite like the Hedge Fund, Banking, and overall investment industry.

Do not even attempt to try to work in the Family Office industry, start a FO, or anything without investing the time in YOURSELF to read this book... STRONGLY recommended....

In the small but burgeoning industry of family office's this book provides a comprehensive and authoritative guide.

The authors association with family office's and their various professional colleague's numbers over 70,000 people, by far the largest in the industry.
