Joint Monthly Luncheon
The Rise of the Family Office: A New Global Force?
A recent cover in “The Economist” depicted family offices as a new force in global finance, whose leaders cut out middlemen by running their own investment firms. Is this a new trend which the financial world should brace itself for, or just hype? The concept is barely new. Family offices already existed at the end of the 19th Century, but their growth has been exploding in the 21st.
Join us to hear the perspective of Nicolas Fu, whose grandfather Y.C. Fu established KHI Holdings in 1947, one of Hong Kong’s first family offices. As the CIO, Nicolas oversees all investment activities of the Group and will share with us his insights into how a Hong Kong family office navigates the global investment landscape and his perspective on changing trends in family office wealth management.
Guest Speaker: Mr. Nicolas Fu
