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.

Interviewing over 1,200 rich people has taught me exactly how money affects the most important things in our lives
Money has a bad reputation with people who don’t have it. It has been blamed for everything from wars to infidelity, from destroying friendships to wrecking families. In the minds of the masses, the more ways they can demonize money, the more validated they feel for not seeking their own fortunes

Pathways to Excellence – Insights from leading advisory practices
In celebration of AFA’s Adviser of the Year Award, and in conjunction with foundation award partner Zurich, AFA presents “Pathways to Excellence”. Utilising data from 18 leading practices and 960 in-depth client interviews, Pathways to Excellence seeks to find the answer to the fundamental question: What do consumers value the most in their adviser relationship, and how are the best practices meeting their clients’ needs? In a rapidly changing consumer environment, mapping out their needs at each step of the journey they share with advisers is now a key approach taken by successful practices.
The Trusted Advisor – Honouring the Client at every turn
Harris Fraser sets out to define characteristics that set leading financial advisory practices apart from their peers. As shown by the AFA’s Pathway of Excellence Series, the trust between the client and adviser is integral in running a successful practice. This white paper seeks a deeper understanding of what clients find most important and what qualities they look for in their individual adviser.
