Virtual Family Office (VFO)
VFO’s have become widely popular and the concept is expanding rapidly.
Wealthy families often seek out for tailored and affordable family offices to cater for their specific needs. A Virtual Family Office (VFO) may be a solution when looking for the services provided by a top tier single family office (SFO) but without the burdens of having to setup their own or when there is no intention to work with a multi-family office (MFO).
A VFO uses a high level of outsourcing, effectively keeping staff and other expenses as low and flexible as possible. The VFO’s role is to coordinate a certain number of carefully selected professionals and experts whose services are available “on call” for their specific knowledge and experience. With the services provided by a VFO, the family retains direct control and flexibility and benefits from a wide array of investment, legal, tax, risk management and other areas of services and expertise.
Candeo is ideally placed to offer VFO services. Using its extensive network of professionals, Candeo has developed the required tools and platform to cater the needs of wealthy families looking for efficient and tailored family office solutions. Families receive the benefits of having the best hand picked professionals beyond those found in a conventional office environment. We can also coordinate and work directly with our clients’ advisors.
