A family office offers many advantages. The services of a professional staff that is dedicated and loyal to the family can be invaluable. A family office is also a useful mechanism for dealing with the human issues and conflicts that can threaten the preservation of a family. Lido Consulting can help your family decide if a family office is the right move for your situation or help you with the issues your family office might be dealing with now.

Families with substantial wealth have the ability to receive advice and services through a variety of sources. They can become a client of a financial institution providing a set of services that meet their needs, they can establish their own stand-alone family office, or even become a client of a multi-family office.

Individuals and families who establish family offices are often presented with the idea by one of their trusted advisors or by a friend who has a family office or is somewhat familiar with the concept. The questions that are most common are: What are the benefits of having a family office? What are the typical services? What amount of wealth is required before it is cost effective to establish a family office? What are the on-going costs of maintaining a first class family office? How do you set up and manage a family office successfully? We review these types of questions with each key family member and possible options are explored in depth.
