UK Family Office

As one of the leading economies in the world, the United Kingdom is a natural fit for family offices.  The UK is home to one of the top 3 financial capitals of the world with London serving as a primary European center for finance and business.   The following free guide to UK Family Offices will help you better understand UK family offices and provide you with resources to learn more about UK family offices. You should also check out our 100% free book on family offices.

Introduction to UK 

The United Kingdom (UK) is one of the largest economies in the world (ranked sixth largest in terms of GDP).  The UK is currently going through some economic difficulties with high unemployment and less-than-stellar growth, but as it emerges from the recession, we anticipate a revival of London as a financial and wealth center for Europe.

Why UK?

The UK, particularly London, rivals New York City as the world’s foremost financial capital and although Manhattan remains top of the list, London is never far behind.  There is a tremendous amount of wealth being created in the UK and many family offices have either long-existed to serve the needs of the high net-worth families and individuals or they recently launched in response to increased demand for family office solutions.  London is one of the premier destinations for the wealthy and many family offices have set up in the city to better serve their clients.  As a finance hub, there are already a high number of wealth management and family offices established in the city so it is an ideal place for family offices to operate.

Family Offices in UK 

Because London has one of the most well-established financial industries in the world, it makes sense that family offices would choose the city as the home for their businesses. It also provides an ideal group of potential clients for family offices and a close proximity to investment partners in Europe that the family office may choose to invest in. This ideal location explains the rapid growth of family offices in London and why despite tough regulation and high taxes of the wealthy in the UK, this growth will likely continue into the foreseeable future.

The following is a collection of UK family office resources:
