Horizons: Family Office & Investor Magazine

Editorial

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

"The Rise and Rise of Family Offices" continues, so the October issue of Horizons: Family Office & Investor Magazine will be received by over 93,000. In case you are reading this in a PDF format, we also recommend to use the convenient and modern ePUB format and download Horizons here.

As a start, please receive my warm invitation to the Aspen Family Wealth Gathering Feb. 11-14th 2019 which is initiated and organized by a group of US family offices and focuses on topics of particular relevance to NextGen members of wealthy families in an intimate get-together. To join us and get involved, please email Aspen@Opalesque.com now.

In this issue, we will also spend some private time with Stephen Kennedy Smith and share new research on Better Decision Making in Asset Management. Prof. Dr. Stocker from the University of Berne, Switzerland tells us how to view climate change also as an opportunity. We also speak with James R. ("Jim") Hedges, IV, one of the "Top 100 Art Collectors in America" about his passion for Warhol photography and how he is making up to five and ten times his capital in this $100 billion market.

Mitzi Perdue is the daughter of one family business titan (her father founded the Sheraton Hotel Chain) and the widow of another (Perdue Chicken). She reminds us that it wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark, and explains why and how we should prepare for family business quarrels now - knowing that 70% of family-owned businesses won't make it to the next generation mainly because of in-fighting.

We also make some recommendations how family offices and (ultra) high net-worth individuals can better manage and mitigate online risks, share research why US Family Offices are missing out on PE opportunities, and investment wizard Francois-Serge Lhabitant introduces his new book on Portfolio Diversification which he says is widely practiced, but rarely discussed or challenged.
