Introduction to San Francisco 

San Francisco is one of the biggest cities in California and serves as one of the top financial centres on the West Coast.  San Francisco has vibrant financial and banking sectors that help support its strong economy.  More generally, California is the largest state in America with more than 10 million people above the second most populated state.  California is also one of the biggest hubs for family offices as it is home to a high number of wealthy families and ultra-high-net-worth individuals.

Why San Francisco?

Besides being a very pleasant area for wealthy individuals to work or retire, California is also an attractive destination for businesses.  With the glamour of celebrity and the beauty of the region, many wealthy families and individuals live in California and family offices have sprung up to serve these clients.  Like New York, California is sure to always be a hub for wealthy families and therefore a top destination for family offices and wealth management firms.  San Francisco rivals Los Angeles as a premier destination for family offices and financial institutions in California.

Family Offices in San Francisco 

The United States has an estimated 500-1000 single-family offices and around 2500-3000 multi-family offices that manage $300 billion and $750 billion.  Although the highest proportion reside in New York, many family offices are in California to service the high number of wealth individuals and families across the California cities.

California, particularly Los Angeles and San Francisco, is home to many of the wealthiest people in America due to the fact that many celebrities, media personalities, actors and actresses, athletes and musicians reside in the area.  This is one big reason that family offices choose to focus on California and often headquarter in Los Angeles or a nearby city, or at least maintain an office in the region.
Although the financial crisis and subsequent recession have certainly had an impact on even the wealthiest in California, there is still a great demand for family offices in California.  The following is a collection of California family office resources:
