Throughout the course of Q3, FINTRX added a total of 154 new family office entities to our private wealth data and research platform. 53% of newly added firms are single-family offices while 47% are multi-family offices.
The chart below demonstrates the different asset classes utilized by family offices throughout the quarter. Alternative asset classes allow for both wealth preservation and asset growth making them attractive options to those in the private wealth space.
A majority of new family offices displayed tendencies to invest in private equity, real estate and via direct investments. A combined 32% of firms showed interest in debt, hedge funds and fund of funds.
Here we outline the assets under management (AUM) ranges of new family offices added to our dataset throughout the quarter. The most prevalent among this sample size are groups with assets between $100M-$400M, at 24%. Family offices with AUM between $400M-$1B and $2B-$5B followed at 21%, respectively.
One of the more prevalent patterns drawn from our research is the relation between the industry in which of wealth origin and the industry of investment interest. With that being said, there is a clear tendency for groups to invest in opportunities throughout familiar industries.
A majority of single-family offices added to our data set in Q3 created their wealth as entrepreneurs, private investors or through real estate ventures. It's important to note that family offices can have more than one origin of wealth.
Our dataset's continued growth in Q3 coincided with the increase of family offices worldwide. A combined 72% of newly added family offices are domiciled in North America and Europe. Asia and the Middle East accounted for 15% of firms while the rest of the world made up the remaining 13%.
- North America: 40%

Throughout our research, we continue to see family offices harnessing direct investment opportunities. The shift toward direct investments is often based on the desire to have greater control over decisions relating to asset allocation. Direct transactions allow family offices to invest in or buy companies of a preferred size or industry which often leads to greater fruition down the road.
Technology remained the leading industry for family office investments at 41%, with 380+ transactions made into private tech companies throughout the quarter. Additional sectors of interest include healthcare & biotechnology, real estate & construction, consumer goods, business services, manufacturing and transportation, among others.
