Boston as home to numerous highly relevant American single family offices
As part of our intensive research into the American family office market, we paid particular attention to Boston. The capital of Massachusetts is one of the oldest and wealthiest cities in the USA and an important science and business location. Harvard and MIT have been attracting the best students in the world for decades and contributing to a vibrant ecosystem. This elitist environment is also home to many wealthy families who have established their single family office in Boston. In this article, we would like to discuss two family offices that are part of our comprehensive database of the largest American SFOs. Further insights can be found in numerous articles on our website. We look forward to making it easier for you to access the world of discreet family offices.
