White Paper: An Examination of the Family Office Model in Major Financial Jurisdictions
This paper discusses family offices from several legal viewpoints and explores laws relating to charity being a normal addendum to the operations of family offices (Offices). It was the intention of this paper to focus on Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia, however, where more extensive (and pervasive or updated) literature was found (e.g. taxation and charity law), this was highlighted using major jurisdictions such as the United Kingdom and the United States. Of course Privacy law could not be examined, in the context of private wealth management, without touching on Switzerland.
