Horizons: Family Office & Investor Magazine

Editorial

Monday, March 04, 2019

We are starting with a portrait of Frederick Chavalit Tsao, one of Asia’s leading business tycoons, who shares some provocative insights and questions on the mortality and sustainability of family businesses, the self-image of families (and why “family stories” can be a trap) and the downside of “Prudence” as a core business and family value.

We are also presenting you a number of case studies why and how family offices should get back control of asset related data by digitizing your family office. Dominik von Eynern has some real life recommendations how to create and live a Family Constitution, and Peter Kellner talks about how he with his all-star team managed to combine two of the most critical megatrends of the 21st Century: Integrated Sustainable Investing & Artificial Intelligence into a multi-asset strategy which vastly outperformed.

We also speak with Peter Fletcher who for the first time in 23 years is giving an interview about the renowned Club b, which is the World’s original family office network of now 700 families globally. We also look at important trends such as the ongoing professionalisation of family offices and why and how family offices are upgrading their C-Level leadership. And finally, we are looking at the family office’s weakest links in cybersecurity and how Jim Hedges brings tech and hedge fund styles to art investing.
