What does a Family Office do?
A family office manages the private assets of wealthy families without being limited to financial issues. The concept can be traced back to the 19th century, when entrepreneurs like John D. Rockefeller set up administrative structures to preserve their values across generations. A Single Family Office manages the assets of just one family, while a Multi Family Office looks after several families in parallel. As the term “Family Office” is not uniformly defined, the range of business models operating as “Family Office” differ considerably.
Kontora sees itself as an architect of complex asset structures. The range of services extends from teaching theoretical basics to the search for and due diligence of attractive investments. The controlling and reporting of these assets is also an important service we provide. A further focus is the planning of company successions, taking tax, legal and family aspects into account. As an independent family office, Kontora works exclusively on a fee basis and waives any kind of commission. This ensures that we always and exclusively act in the interest of our clients.
