What's On

Family business, once synonymous with mom and pop stores, has over the decades witnessed rapid growth and has become associated with major multi-million-valued names and labels across the globe. Equally significant is the evolution of Family Offices - curators of wealth for ultra-high net worth families - which have branched into a range of professional financial services encompassing such activities as private investments to charitable giving. Such developments, accompanied by an increase of high-net worth individuals from 3.3 million in 2010 to 6.1 million in 2018 in Asia Pacific alone, have given rise to a private finance boom.

What does all of this mean for Hong Kong? The Pearl of the Orient has been running its engines at full throttle in recent years to win the race of becoming the world's second largest cross-border private wealth management hub and is now Asia's second largest market for private equity. A full-scale arrival of Family Offices on its shores would undoubtedly spruce up the city's financial scene and further bolster its standing as an international financial centre.

Our distinguished line-up of speakers in the second of a 3-part webinar series will provide a deep-dive into the global digitalisation trends, and the strategies and key success factors for the digital transformation of family offices in Hong Kong.
