A family office is the organization a family creates, often after the sale of a family business or another realization of significant liquidity, to support the financial needs of a specific family. While no formal data exists, we estimate there are between 2,500 and 6,000 family offices in the United States, and that another 5,000 exist informally inside privately controlled businesses in the U.S. In Europe and Asia, the concept of life and wealth management in a family office is evolving, but new family offices in these areas are still being formed monthly in these areas.
