Horizons: Family Office & Investor Magazine

Editorial

Monday, September 16, 2019

With almost 100,000 readers, Horizons: Family Office & Investor Magazine (a free publication) is the leading global publication for this investor segment.

Previous and this issue can be downloaded as PDF or ePUB from the archive: https://www.opalesque.com/archive-horizons.html

Willis Towers Watson Investments’ Thinking Ahead Group ranks the following as the top three “extreme risks”:

  • Global temperature changes with scenarios where the planet becomes far less habitable

  • A potential collapse of global trade, driven by the rise of protectionism

  • Cyber warfare
Investors are advised to be “open minded, avoid concentrated risks, be sensitive to early warning signs, constantly adapt and always prepare for the worst”.

While we cannot prevent a cyber war, feel free to reach out to Jeremy Samide (page 51) and his team for a free consultation on your firm’s cybersecurity and why you should never think you’re “too small” or not relevant for bad actors.

We also have a new, fascinating “Family Office Anonymous” contribution (page 14) - remember that you are invited to get in touch if you’d like to share your thoughts, reflections and experiences with a greater audience while making sure your identity is protected.

Like you, I believe in global collaboration, and so I’m happy and proud that the contributors to the fourth issue of Horizons: Family Office & Investor Magazine come from five continents.
