The 2019 FOX Family Office Study explored several key components of family office operations such as cost, governance structure, education and client experience. Join FOX’s Chief Operating Officer, Glen Johnson, who will share the perspective of 135 family office executives on the elements driving success in a family office. He will also shed light on best practices to assess and demonstrate the value of a family office.
