This report was published by INSEAD’s GlobalPrivate Equity Initiative (GPEI) with support from the Pictet Group, the leading independent global wealth and asset managers.

In this publication, INSEAD’s Global Private Equity Initiative together with the Pictet Group, explore the growth and institutionalization of family offices in Asia. To understand the capabilities and characteristics of the region’s family offices in a global context, we conducted interviews with 30 family offices in locales as diverse as China and Dubai. We relate the attributes and anticipated investment performance of family offices in terms of their institutionalization in two easy to use frameworks.
