  • Reducing reliance on fund managers: Is the trend of family offices investing directly set to continue, or will fund participation still be there?
  • Risk profile: Are family offices less risk-averse than their institutional counterparts?
  • The Brexit effect: As some investors pull money from UK property funds, what opportunities does this create for family offices?
