“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” – Albert Einstein
Our world has fundamentally changed due to the coronavirus pandemic, disrupting the great American way of life. The effects of this virus have left most of us wondering how the economy will bounce back after a new administration and a national vaccine rollout, what the rebuilding efforts will be and when we can return to normal.
This uncertainty has no doubt rippled through the family office world—everything from remote working to technology usage to reevaluating portfolios to reflect this volatility. But amidst great volatility remains great opportunity, and family offices are seeking out the best ideas. Specific opportunities in the distressed real estate sector, private jets and luxury travel are of increased interest to families. A greater discussion on where value remains is also taking place as investors evaluate alternatives, commodities and real estate.
The all but forgotten concept of the virtual family office is back on the table now as families were forced into remote working and liaising with teammates virtually. While some had seamless experiences, others had to act quickly and decisively to put new procedures in place. So now that family offices are set up virtually, the question remains: will we ever go back to the way things were?
To that end, employing a variety of socially-distanced formats (expert presentations, small working groups, family-only sessions, and workshops), this program will endeavor to address a range of those important issues facing family members and executives.
In this challenging time, the 18th Annual Institutional Investor Family Office Wealth Conference strives to foster a family to family dialogue and provide a physically safe space for thoughtful, intellectual discussions to help us get through this together. Within this socially distant setting, we will provide content through a variety of formats including breakout discussions, workshops and think tanks, utilizing all of the beautiful outdoor space the Montage Laguna Beach has to offer.
