The kidnapping of German billionaire Reinhold Würth’s disabled son and the gassing of F1 racing driver Jenson Button and his wife by burglars at a St Tropez villa are just two recent examples of high-profile personal security breaches.

Costs, CEO pay, assets, performance. All these came under the spotlight in the second annual Global Family Office Report. While the inaugural report was about debunking myths from the industry, this year's edition examines what trends have emerged from that starting point.
