Family Office Leadership Program 2021
As we attempt to put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us and focus on a global recovery, our flagship ‘Family Office Leadership Program’ returned to feature thought leaders, family office experts and influential market commentators to engage, inform and inspire all audiences. Often described by participants as ‘the Davos for Family Offices’, the program transformed into a virtual format last year which was maintained in 2021. The chosen theme was ‘Looking to the Future’ for family offices. This year’s agenda ran over four days from 7th to 10th June 2021, and was inaugurated by Jim O'Donnell, Head of Citi Global Wealth.
