  • FOX Complexity Study: Results and Interpretation

    Scott Winget
    , Enterprise Market Leader, FOX

    Moderated by Ruth Easterling, Managing Director, FOX

FOX recently completed a new study on Complexity and Value. The study centers on the complexity that is reflected in a family’s size, structure and planning, and how that in-turn drives complexity and cost in the office. The study also reveals how the office provides value to the family in managing inherent complexity, mitigating risks and leveraging opportunities. Attendees will get a chance to review and discuss the findings, learn how to interpret their own office results, and explore how to use the study for the benefit of the family and the office.

FOX brings together a panel of experts to explore the implications and potential scenarios for family office executives and key advisors to consider in their planning.

Exploring Trust with Technology

Clara Durodié, Executive Chair, Cognitive Finance 
Moderated by Kent Lawson, Director, Technology Integration Services, FOX

Trust is the core value in family offices' work. It has been forged over decades and in some cases, generations. Trust has always been fragile, but in the digital space, even more so. How is trust redefined in a world where we will be conducting work mostly digitally? How do we choose technology that builds trust rather than destroys it? What are the five red flags we need to be aware of, and how does ethical AI address these concerns? These questions and more will be addressed.

In this keynote, hear Talent Management guru Rob Ollander-Krane share a strong point of view for finding a happy middle… the hybrid work environment. He will share key things to consider when making the choice and a few strategies for operationalizing it.
