The Family Office Industry is expanding with an impressive pace with a new family office opening every month.  Just as impressive is the growth of the wealth management industry servicing the family office.  The impact of the growth is evidenced all around us by their investments in apartment buildings, franchises, and venture capital. Family Offices have become an important source of capital for the small and medium-sized businesses and investments that fuel our economy, an especially important factor given the slowdown in lending by traditional commercial banks.
