In this list we combine two unique assets: our global database with more than 1,600 global single family offices and our expertise in building web crawlers and analysis tool. We used an alnlysis tool to check if the websites of the family offices from our database cover fund-related keywords, such as „funds“ or „fund“. The resulting list contains all the data from our family office lists, as well as dedicated keyword analysis columns. The list include all family offices from our database that have at least 1 relevant fund keyword occurrence.

Keyword Crawler Methodology: how we identify fund investment focused family offices

The size of our database makes it impossible to check each family office website individually for relevant keywords. Therefore, we have developed a Python-based tool that does the work in a three-step process.

  1. Each family office website in our database is crawled and searched for subpages.
  2. Using the appropriate keywords, the individual sub-pages are crawled, and the number of keywords mentioned is counted and set in relation to the total number of words on the page. From this we can calculate various statistics (see below) and thus highlight the subpage with the highest number of occurrences.
  3. Finally we use the results in combination with our global family office database to create a customized list of fund investor single family offices.

Results of the keyword analysis: data points included in the list

Like all our regular family office lists, the list of fund investor single family offices contains contact details, executives, background information and detailed investment focus information. In addition, the list is populated with the results of the keyword analysis, namely:

  • total_frequency (e.g.: 16) – total counted occurrences of keywords on family office website
  • average_keyword_rate (e.g. 0.1) – average rate of keyword occurrences per subpage in relation with total number of words
  • most_common_keyword (e.g. „funds“) – keyword that was counted the most often on family office website
  • most_common_keyword_frequency (e.g. 10) – number of times the most common keyword was counted
  • sub_url_highest_rate (e.g. https://familyofficeabc.de/funds) – sub url with the highest number of found keywords
  • highest_rate (e.g. 0.1) – highest keyword rate per subpage
  • frequency_per_keyword: {‘funds’: 0, ‘fund’: 828, ‘etf’: 2078} – dictionary of number of keyword occurrences per keyword

Analyzed keywords and crawler settings

Our crawler analyzed the family office websites for the following keywords: “funds”, “fund”, “etf”.

Thereby, we cover fund-related keywords in the main language for the countries covered in our database. Our Tool crawled each family office website for at least 60 seconds.

Pros and cons of our keyword-based approach

Our list Is the perfect starting point for getting in touch with single family offices in the fund investment space. By crawling the websites of the family offices and calculating keyword occurrence rates, we managed to identify the most relevant family offices. However, our approach has two possible pitfalls. First, our keyword crawler only works if the targeted keywords are mentioned on the website. That’s often the case, since throughout the last years, many family offices started communicating their investments. However, if a family office does not have a website or keeps its activities secret, it won’t be mentioned. Second, since we can not interpret the context of the keywords, false positives are possible. For instance, if a family office writes an article why it is not investing in funds, it would still be in the list. In addition, we can not deliver results if the website effectively blocks our crawler (which is rarely the case).

All in all, we are convinced that our list offers a highly relevant starting point for identifying the most relevant fund investing family offices.
