Family Office Dashboard


Year Founded

A closer examination of the family office data within the FINTRX platform reveals that a majority of family offices (31%) were founded in the early 2000s. This underscores the significant evolution of the family office space over the past two decades, as wealthy families increasingly sought to centralize the management of their financial affairs and legacy planning. The growth was likely fueled by the rise in entrepreneurial wealth, increasingly complex investment and tax environments and a desire for more control over wealth management.
