global family office report 2014

February 4, 2015

One of the most enduring family office myths is that no one office is alike. The industry’s most common phrase, ‘once you’ve seen one family office, you’ve seen one family office’, speaks to their distinct nature. Yet the UBS and Campden Wealth Global Family Office Report 2014 cast doubt on this conventionally held wisdom.

The industry’s most common phrase, ‘once you’ve seen one family office, you’ve seen one family office’, speaks to their distinct nature. Yet the UBS and Campden Wealth Global Family Office Report 2014 cast doubt on this conventionally held wisdom, finding that family offices have more in common than originally thought.

European family offices are less likely to manage philanthropy projects than their global counterparts. What impact is this having on their charitable giving and engagement of the next generation?

Family offices in Europe are far less interested in managing family philanthropy than originally thought, with more than one-third (36%) not involved in the practice at all, according to the Global Family Office Study 2014. This is proportionally higher than any other region.

Family offices in North America are not collaborating on investments as much as originally thought. Why is the world’s largest wealth market cool on the concept, when it’s so popular in other parts of the globe?

The popular belief that family offices in North America regularly invest together has been challenged by the Global Family Office Report 2014, finding instead that they are the least likely to co-invest. 

According to the report, 61% of family offices in North America co-invested together last year, while in European offices this figure sat at 86%.

Asian family offices are more self-reliant than originally thought, but that doesn’t mean their investment targets are being hit. This self-reliance is in keeping with an increased desire for independence. 

Family offices in Asia-Pacific rely heavily on external service providers for core functions, according to the Global Family Office Report 2014, challenging a long-held stereotype that they are self-reliant. In fact, it has found that Asian offices spend roughly 20% less than those in Europe and North America. 

According to the report, family offices in Asia-Pacific spend 46% of their total budget on external services, while those in North America and Europe spend between 63% and 70%, respectively.
