FUNDamentals: Considerations for Family Offices

Webinar Only

View a recording of this webinar here.

Family offices differ from other investors in a variety of ways, from being able to deploy “patient capital” and having flexible investment mandates to bringing specific operational and strategic expertise to portfolio companies. From the structuring and formation of, to operations and investments by, family offices, there are a number of fundamental considerations for principals and advisors.

This presentation will explore and focus on: what constitutes a “family office;" the formation and regulation of family offices, including compliance with the family office exemption from Investment Adviser registration; developing and implementing investment policy statements; and key investment considerations for family office investors when evaluating and investing in private funds.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the participant will understand:

  • The family office exemption under the Investment Advisers Act
  • Considerations in forming family investment vehicles
  • Important considerations in evaluating and negotiating fund investments.
