Different types of Single Family Offices in Israel
Israeli single family offices appear in different types. Most people understand a SFO as a specialized investment firm for a certain family. The investment professionals are carefully evaluating investment opportunities, taking care of the risk management and ensure long-term growth of the fortune, without forgetting to ensure recurring payouts. That’s the case for most family offices, but there are also other types. Some SFOs develop out of an existing family business which starts to invest in business-field related ventures and opportunities. Others are building their family offices – for example – around their real estate business. While some single family offices are held as stock-noted family holdings. Rather new is that some single family offices are also offering their services for external clients (to split the fixed costs of running an investment firm and to enlarge the assets under management). The type of the single family office mainly determines the investment approach and focus.
