Family Office Jobs: Many institutional allocators, those running pension funds or endowment funds are moving into family office portfolio management roles. At the same time, traditional private banking and wealth management professionals also find the thought of working with less clients that each have more money very appealing due to the level of service delivery and attention to detail that it can sometimes allow. Family office jobs can pay anywhere from $45,000 a year to $1M+ bonuses or participation in deals completed while acting as a CIO or CEO of a large family office. With new family offices being started every day, we have had over 250 professionals enroll in the QFOP program over the last two years, looking to become more well qualified to work in the industry. Here is a short video on family office jobs that we recorded in Prague, Czech Republic recently:
Richard C. Wilson: Founder and CEO
Richard C. Wilson helps $100M+ net worth families create and manage their single family offices and currently manages 14 clients including mandates with three billionaire families and as the CEO of a $500M+ single family office and Head of Direct Investments for another with $200M+ in assets. Richard is also the founder of the Family Office Club, the largest membership-based family office association (FamilyOffices.com), along with equity holdings in the training, single family office management (SingleFamilyOffices.com), investment conference, search, data research, physical bullion, private equity (PrivatEquity.com), food, and energy industries which do over $10M a year in combined revenue.
