Organizational Framework for the Family Office

  • Jens EscherEmail author


Whether spun off from a family company or founded new, the family office requires a solid organizational framework. For families living in more than one country, the first issue to be addressed with qualified legal and tax experts is the choice of a suitable jurisdiction. The selection of a suitable legal form builds on that choice. Within the framework of jurisdiction and legal form, a tax expert can then help position the family and its wealth as advantageously as possible. Other factors requiring consideration include potential regulatory requirements, which can vary greatly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and the internal structuring of the wealth to serve the varying needs of different branches of the family. Interview with James Fleming, Family Officer from the UK.
