Course Contents and Methodology
Since the king’s steward managed the royal wealth in the VI century, the aristocracy established the concept of stewardship (regent, governor) that exists today.
In 1838, the family of financier and art collector J.P. Morgan founded the House of Morgan to manage the family assets. In 1882, the Rockefeller founded their own family office, which is still in existence and provides services to other families.
Essentially private wealth management firms, set up to look after the finances of high net worth individuals and their individuals, are one of the fastest-growing investment vehicles in the world today
There is no registry of FO, but it is estimated that there are more than 3,000 single family offices in existence globally
