Family offices are often likened to snowflakes because, “like snowflakes, no two family offices are alike.”  While it is certainly true that each family office is unique and has its own ethos and perspective, they also are likely share a set of characteristics that create unique investment opportunities and challenges.  During and after the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, we expect that these unique attributes will inform the strategies and tactics that family offices employ to navigate -- and take advantage of -- the new investment landscape.

In this One-Hour Briefing, Joseph Ehrlich, National Practice Leader for Private Equity, Family Office and M&A at Beecher Carlson Insurance Services, LLC will be joined by a panel of family office professionals as they explore the following topics:

    The potential impact of COVID-19 on the economy and the investment landscape
    The impact of COVID-19 on current family office investments and their investment pipeline
    The ways family offices are revising and rethinking investment and portfolio risk balancing strategies
    The ways family offices are modifying their investment strategies considering COVID-19
    The ways family offices are differentiating their offerings from private equity in this environment
