The Spring 2024 Edition of FOG is the 15th Anniversary Edition of the Family Office Publication
GPFO Publication 2024 | Family Office Global (FOG) Spring Edition 2024


Today marks the publication of the 15th Anniversary Edition of Family Office Global (FOG) Magazine. Consistent with the 1st edition of FOG in 2009, it explores a spectrum of topics, from best practice issues and investment themes to geopolitics, all through the lens of the family office.

"GPFO is 15 years old this year. I recall back in 2009 the words ‘family office’ seemed largely unfamiliar to many people outside of the world of private wealth... At GPFO, our focus is not on the glitz and glamour of wealth but remains focused on the blood, sweat, and tears within the family office and the efforts needed to preserve and create wealth across generations... I am incredibly proud of the work which GPFO has undertaken over the last 15 years, and look forward to continuing to work with families across the globe during our next chapter of growth."
Dr. Michael J. Oliver (Co-Founder of GPFO)

This new edition of Family Office Global opens with a fascinating discussion between our own Michael Oliver and Hugo King-Oakley about the core principles of Global Partnership Family Offices and the key challenges and opportunities that family offices will face over the next few years. In an accompanying article, Hugo explains how the GPFO platform continues to evolve to provide the best service to members.
