Real estate, private equity and hedge funds were three asset categories that defined family office investment in 2014, but what other areas should family offices prioritise as they move into the next financial year? 

The multi-year trend of family offices taking on more risk continued in 2015, both in investment intentions and portfolio allocations, according to the second annual Global Family Office Report. Yet one unintended consequence of their ‘risk on’ approach is that many offices are excessively focused on investments, which in turn means they are failing to address several key areas of concern.

Private equity was the most common asset class among family offices in 2014 and one of the year’s best performers. So why are some executives voicing caution about expectations moving forward? 

The popular belief that strong returns in private equity will continue into the future has been challenged by participants in the Global Family Office Report 2015, warning that a build-up in unallocated capital could lead to lesser returns. 

According to one chief executive from a single family office in North America, who participated in the report anonymously, the record level of unspent cash is creating undue levels of competition, which is in turn pushing up prices.

Low interest rates and lacklustre returns in equities helped the hedge fund asset category gain the largest growth in allocations this year, but a diverse investment strategy from external managers meant that returns were a mixed bag.

The multi-year trend of family offices taking on more risk continued in 2015, triggering a two percentage point increase in allocations to hedge funds, according to the second annual Global Family Office Report.

Data revealed that the average family office portfolio allocated approximately 9% to hedge funds in 2015, up from 7% the year before, making it the fastest growing asset class for the year.
