Thank you for taking the time to read through our quarterly briefing and we look forward to a potential engagement with your team.
The Q1 2021 Family Office Data Report has been produced exclusively through the use of our expansive family office data and research platform. This cross-section of our complete data set provides an accurate representation of the alternative wealth space and private capital markets, as well as specific family office data trends compiled from January, February, and March 2021. Thanks to our dedicated research team - who continuously update and expand our vast data set - we can share valuable information regarding family offices and the private wealth ecosystem at large.

Several variables play a part in the investments of family offices. One of the more prevalent patterns elucidated by our research is the connection between the industry of wealth origin and the industry of investment interest. As illustrated above, most family offices added to the FINTRX platform in Q1 made their wealth via financial services, private investments, generational wealth, and real estate.
Throughout January, February, and March 2021, our analysis showed Texas, New York, California, and Florida as having the most number of family office additions.
A majority of family offices added are multi-family offices (76%) while single-family office additions made up the remaining 24%.
- North America: 54%
- Europe: 31%
- Asia: 6%
- Rest of World: 9%
Direct investments have become increasingly common throughout the family office space, particularly when it comes to single-family offices. We attribute this trend to a number of changes, none more influential than the increase in sophistication of family office vehicles themselves.
Over the past decade, family offices have accumulated the assets and talent required to effectively allocate capital directly into the private space. The result is more than half of family offices allocating capital directly to some degree.
A majority of family offices that made direct investments throughout Q1 did so into the technology, financial services, and healthcare and biotech spaces. 21% of family offices that invested directly did so via acquisitions.
Parallel to the spike in wealth and family offices being established on behalf of high-net-worth individuals, the FINTRX platform maintains a strong awareness of the market and is consistently enhancing the coverage and impact of its data and research. With their patient capital, family offices are well-positioned to capitalize on many opportunities arising within the current market environment. That said, the family office landscape is an opaque and close-guarded one, which makes our efforts both challenging and rewarding. However, through the expansion of strategic partnerships, private sourcing methods, and public aggregation, we remain dedicated to providing high-quality family office intel to our global client base.
FINTRX provides comprehensive intelligence on thousands of private family offices, each designed to facilitate your prospecting and capital-raising efforts. Explore in-depth profiles on each family - AUM, source of wealth, investment criteria, previous investment history, industries of interest - and other key data points to help elevate your workflow.
