What is a Family Office?
A Family Office is an organization in charge of comprehensively managing the different items related to families’ wealth by covering the fields of knowledge involved in its administration. Its operation requires the abilities of professionals in several disciplines who work together for the exclusive benefit of the family´s wealth.

Decisions related to our clients’ wealth management are supported by sophisticated analysis, through which we estimate the impact and consequences of those eventual decisions, issuing recommendations according to the client’s specific needs.
The process whereby wealth is transferred to the next generation is complex, dynamic, and requires permanent guidance. Our team has the experience and knowledge to advise the design and execution of the estate strategy convenient for each client.
