Frequently asked questions about...
... our data.
Our experienced research team uses various sources for data retrieval and for finding new relevant family offices: we analyze global investment news, we are in close contact with our network of family offices and investment professionals, we build sophisticated web crawling technologies and we investigate which family office is behind which deal.
Our family office lists include general email addresses, phone numbers, URLs, executive names and postal addresses. Our database does not contain “hidden” personal contact details, since that would violate European privacy laws (GDPR). In some cases, when personal contact details are provided by family offices or are publicly available, they might be included in our lists. Due to the short lines of communication at family offices, our clients have had very good experiences in using the contact details provided to get in touch with the investment managers.
Our lists only include publicly available data or data provided directly by family offices. Thereby, we don’t offer personal (GDPR relevant) data, but save you months of research of identifying the most important family offices.
“N.a.” means that the specific information is not available. In case we know that firm XY is a relevant family office, but we only know its address, phone number and that it for sure invests in real estate we will fill out every known detail. The rest of the fields will be filled with “n.a.”. If you want to know the exact coverage (e.g. how many entries come with executive names) please either look on the website or get in touch with us. We are happy to give you detailed coverage statistics

... updates of our family office lists.
Yes, we update our lists several times per year in order to offer up-to-date and top-notch information. The columns “Last Check”, “Last Update” and “Update Log” will tell you when the entry was checked the last time, when it was updated the last time and what changed during the last update (e.g. “New CEO”).
Usually, we update our lists 2-3 times per year. But we can’t guarantee a certain number of updates. For example, in 2019 we updated our European single family office database three times. In the beginning of 2019, our database only contained a litte more than 300 entries. Today, our list includes more than 550 European single family offices.
Our Canadian single family office list
Single family offices are managing the fortune of wealthy families or individuals. In Canada, the wealth of many family offices stems from the mining industry, real estate, software companies, or industrial corporations. Now, the family offices are investing actively in various asset classes. Our list offers a unique overview of the most important and largest single family offices in Canada.
Contact details of single family offices from Canada
Our list is the optimal source of Canadian single family offices and the perfect mean to get in touch with them. For every single family office, as many contact details as possible are listed, from generic email addresses, phone numbers to executive names and postal addresses. Please note that we are bound to European GDPR and thus can only publish publicly available information and general contact details instead of personal ones.
Single family offices as real estate investors
An important asset class for Canadian single family offices is real estate. By acquiring existing properties or developing new ones, the private investment firms are enlargening their real estate portfolio. An interesting example is the Frind Properties family office from Vancouver that invests in commercial, residential and insturial properties.
Investment focus: venture capital and private equity
Another important asset class for single family offices from Canada is venture capital and private equity. By investing in startups and established private corporations, family investment firms are targeting returns well above the regular near-zero interest rates. While some family offices pursue direct investments, many family offices are also investing through funds or alongside them in co-investments.
Family offices as active investors on financial markets
Also stocks and bonds are belonging to the main asset classes of Canadian single family offices. Once again, the family offices are either pursuing active porfolio management with stock picking and their own investment decisions, while others are building up a diversified portfolio of funds of asset managers.
