Family office services

Reap the benefits of a family office, without the need to set up and manage a privately-owned company. Our bespoke package of outsourced solutions, tailored to your unique circumstances, can support you with your life, your wealth and your business, and all three combined.

One overarching view of your finances, one dedicated aide to coordinate your affairs 

Typical family offices will manage your investments, while outsourcing your other requirements to external professionals, leaving you to have to handle various contacts and scattered projects, and unable to visualise your overall position. We’ve combined our wide range of services into one harmonious package, to provide you with the outsourcing of services that a family office could provide, without the cost of running a bespoke company and the challenge of finding the right personnel to operate it.

We have the capability in-house, where over 450 of us work under one roof in specialist teams, to tailor-make financial solutions from various areas of expertise. You’ll have one point of contact guiding you through it all, no matter how many of our different teams you work with. Your contact will coordinate your chosen services and provide you with a clear overarching picture of your life, your wealth and your business, and all three combined.

A global network at your disposal

A global network at your disposal

For any services we do not offer in-house, we have longstanding, whole of market relationships with advisers in a wide range of sectors, all with niche specialisms and areas of expertise. This includes experts on lifestyle management and schooling, trust and offshore company formation and administration, investment and banking services, legal services, real estate purchase and sales, property management, immigration, interior design and construction.

If you're looking for a recommendation, its likely that we already know someone suitable that we can connect you with. What we call our 'open architecture' means that we operate without ties or agreements in place, leading us to favour one advisor over another. This means that we'll recommend who in our network is the best fit for you and your specific circumstances, without any bias.

Your family office contact here at Buzzacott can help to negotiate fees and be involved in as much communication as you’d like, whether that’s liaising with the contact on your behalf or being involved in the background to ensure the service is completed as agreed at the outset.
