The UBS/Campden Wealth European Family Office Survey 2013
Price: 100.00

This is the sixth Campden European Family Office survey, and the fourth sponsored by UBS. It covers sixty-one offices across Europe, each with a net worth in excess of €50million. The survey takes place against the backdrop of a more benign wealth management environment than last year, with fewer fears about Eurozone collapses, and the continued support by central banks of the global financial system. Family offices as a whole describe the mood in 2013 as “more confident, but no easier.”

The report includes forty-two single family offices (SFOs) and nineteen multifamily offices (MFOs). They range in size from small offices working for a single family in one location, to large multi-family offices with branches in different locations.

"This year, it is encouraging to celebrate the resilience of European family offices, as they continue to adapt in implementing investment and succession plans, which are so critical to ensuring family legacies,” stated Dominic Samuelson, CEO of Campden Wealth.

Samuelson continued, “Results of the study reinforce our considered belief that family offices are not only sustainable but growing stronger. It’s wonderful, then, to see European family offices regain their confidence and, along with their American and Asian counterparts, begin to realign their investment portfolios toward a more balanced, growth-oriented distribution.”

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.
