Russian Family Office Guide

I was recently in Russia for a banking and wealth management conference and to host a hedge fund networking event.  It was a great business trip and I was able to learn more about Russia’s financial system and the alternative investment landscape in the country.  The following free guide to Russia Family Offices will help you better understand Russian family offices and provide you with resources to learn more about Russian family offices. You should also check out our 100% free book on family offices.

Introduction to Russia 

In the post-Soviet Union Russian Federation, there has been a tremendous amount of wealth created under the new economic freedoms.  With the growth of independent businesses, there has been a corresponding uptick in the number of wealthy families in Russia.  Today Russia is still far from the most business-friendly country in the world but many international businesses and investors successfully navigate the Russian financial system every day.

Why Russia?

Russia is home to a great deal of wealth and the country has embraced many reforms aimed at creating freer markets and opening up the country’s business to international competition and trade in recent years.  This has generated a lot of new businesses and a new class of wealthy families that require the services of family offices to help manage their wealth, invest and provide a range of other services.   If Russia’s economy continues its upward trajectory of the last 10 years then we are likely to see an even greater need for family offices.

Russian Family Offices

The elite and wealthy families in Russia have made headlines over the last decade or more with investments in various industries in America, Europe and beyond.  With the help of family offices, this trend will likely continue as more Russian families look to allocate their wealth locally and abroad.  The business and investing climate in Russia is sometimes unpredictable but with recent reforms it has become more manageable and more welcoming of international financial firms including family offices.  We expect Moscow and other Russian cities to increasingly attract family offices.
