Where the World's Richest Countries Invest

A sovereign wealth fund is an investment pool of foreign currency reserves owned by a government. The largest investment pools are owned by countries that have a trade surplus, such as China and oil-exporting countries. They take in foreign currencies, primarily US dollars, in exchange for their exports. The funds are then invested to produce the highest return possible.

What Is A Family Office?

Most definitions of a family office will include the standard wealth management functions. That is, a family office performs centralized management or oversight of investments, tax planning, estate planning, and philanthropic planning. But, if that is all an organization is doing for the families it serves, it seems proper to call the entity a wealth management firm and not a family office.
Which brings up an important point. The term “family office” has certain catchiness to it. It sells.
