The UBS/Campden European Family Office Survey 2012
Back to business: Family offices adapt to the new normal
Price: 100.00

This is the fifth Campden European Family Office survey. The report covers 59 single and multi family offices across Europe, each with a net worth between €50 million and €1.5 billion. 

The offices range in size from small offices working for a single family in one location, to large multi family offices with different branches servicing more than 100 families.

One of the main aims of this year’s report is to examine key trends and issues facing single family offices and multi family offices, and provide comparative data against which individual offices could evaluate their activities and strategies. Equally importantly, it aims to examine the longer-term trends reflected over the years since the survey was first done, particularly the response of family offices across Europe to the financial crisis that started in 2008, as well as the ongoing eurozone crisis. 

Campden Research reports are available on a complimentary basis to all qualifying family principals, family office executives, private investors and IPI members who complete a request form.  Campden Research reports are available for purchase to all other individuals.
