Conference Cancelled

It is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Forum due to the impact of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and the overriding concern that have caused us to make this decision at this time has always been the responsibility we feel towards our conference delegates, speakers, and partners.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused, but as always, the safety and health of our participants, community and staff are our priority and we feel this is the best option.

GOOD NEWS: We will be hosting Virtual ExecConnect: online 1-1 private meetings.

Delivering high-level insight for family office investing in the PE & VC space

Over the past ten years, family offices have been one of the fastest growing segments of the wealth management industry, and this trend is expected to continue. Recent reports estimate family offices hold global assets in excess of $5 trillion, allowing them to become a disruptive force in the marketplace with the capabilities of transactions traditionally reserved for their institutional counterparts.

Join 300+ qualified Family Offices, Independent Sponsors, LP’s, and GP’s from all over the country to gain insight on the latest family office investment trends and independent sponsor deal-flows.

Now in it’s 4th year, the Family Office Connect series has emerged as the official playground for single and multi-family office networking in North America. It is produced by the award-winning minds of Private Equity International, PE HUB, Buyouts, and Venture Capital Journal.
