Family offices are a type of venture investor whose roots go way back. Pioneered by the Rockefellers back in the late 1800’s, family offices began as a way for very wealthy families to centralize the management and investment of their fortunes. With the increasing number of millionaires and billionaires in the world, and driven by savvy investors and entrepreneurs, single-family offices (SFOs) and Multi-family offices (MFOs) are an important source of investment for the startup community. Here are five blogs and sites that can help you learn all you need to know about family office venture investing:
Membership in the Family Office Association includes access to a knowledge center including videos, podcasts, and more, providing in-depth knowledge of the family office industry.
The Family Office Exchange hosts a blog that features topics and questions from and about their global community of wealthy families and their advisors.
The Wealth Report is a blog by the Wall Street Journal on wealth management that touches on relevant topics to the family office industry.
Barron’s Penta Daily blog is a blog focused on wealth management for millionaires, but can also provide valuable insights on family office investing trends.
The Family Office Club is the largest family office association in the industry and the premier family office conference provider.
