Institutional Investor’s annual Family Office Conference goes virtual as a not to be missed industry event. The effects of this virus have left most of us wondering how the economy will deal with the budget deficit, what the rebuilding efforts will be and when can we return to normal.
Still, more questions remain. What will this current budget deficit do in the long run? What will the future of higher education look like? What is in store for virtual healthcare or commercial real estate?
Ultimately, we’re left asking how we can identify future black swans and prepare for the great unknown.
This uncertainty has no doubt rippled through the family office world—but amidst great volatility remains great opportunity, and family offices are waiting to pick their spots. Specific opportunities in the distressed real estate sector, private jets and luxury travel are of increased interest to families. A greater discussion on where value remains is also taking place as investors evaluate alternatives, gold and real estate.
The all but forgotten concept of the virtual family office is back on the table now as families were forced into remote working and liaising with teammates virtually. While some had seamless experiences, others had to act quickly and decisively to put new procedures in place. So now that family offices are set up virtually, the question remains: will we ever go back to the way things were?
This year, our virtual format will have the “best of” our live events including guest speakers, panel discussions, workshops and family office-led breakout groups.
In this challenging time, the 17th Annual Institutional Investor Family Office Wealth Conference strives to foster a virtual family to family dialogue to help us get through this together. Thought leaders and industry peers will come together on October 13-15, 2020.
Participation is strictly limited to qualified executives. Once registered, a member of the Institutional Investor team will be in touch to confirm attendance. Due to capacity restraints, all registrations will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.
