As time has progressed, the needs of family offices have become more and more complex. Each family office has a diversity of needs — from investments and philanthropy to taxes and next-generational planning — and a uniqueness within that diversity of needs. This means that the recruitment of the right leadership talent is extremely important, but also extremely challenging.
