A Family Office is an all-round solution for our Ultra High Net Worth clients, which can help them and their families to manage their wealth and legacy planning.  At IPCG, we find the best, consolidated solutions for our clients, tailored according to their needs.

As Ultra High Net Worth families accumulate their wealth, it will get increasingly difficult and time consuming for them to balance their capital, needs and responsibilities. This is where Family Offices come in, to help them to manage their family wealth and investments, plan their legacy, and most importantly, manage their businesses amidst a period of technological disruptions. Family Offices help not just the client, but also their family, by considering each member’s desires and perceptions. Setting up a Family Office’s primary interest is to support the Ultra High Net Worth families with a wide range of advisory, incorporating both professional and operational capacity to grow and preserve their wealth for their next generations.

We understand that setting up Family Offices can be tedious with a complex procedure.  That is why our team has the avenues to help you set up your Family Office with ease.  Besides sharing knowledge and expertise when you need personalized recommendations, we also partner with a number of the best service providers and financial institutions who can offer the most beneficial solutions to your needs.   We are Independent Advisors who offer objective and efficient advisory to your best interests.
