Event information

Family offices are increasingly looking east, with the promise of high-yield equities in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region attracting investors from across the globe.

Findings from the Asia-Pacific Family Office Report 2021 by Campden Wealth and Raffles Family Office revealed that more than half of family offices around the world plan to increase their investments in APAC. Among family offices based in APAC, 77% plan on increasing their investments in their home region.

Interest in digital assets has also intensified.

In the same report, nearly 35% of family offices in the APAC region have begun to enhance their understanding of the asset class with plans to increase cryptocurrency investments in 2022.
