We aim to fill the gap we have identified in the region, as there is a current lack of quality family office conference offering the combination of high level networking and wide ranging relevant topics we are able to provide.
About the summit
As the world takes great leaps into a new future from such a difficult period, it is our honour and delight to be back once again in the inspiring and ambitious centre of Europe.
As ever, we will be bringing together the most prominent and active family offices in the region with those who wish to meet and work with them.
Being a family office ourselves, our programme always accurately reflects the interests of family offices. This time we are covering not only investment related topics such as real estate and wealth preservation, but also issues of governance which are unique to family office structures.
We will also look at the opportunities presented by informed investment in sport, not only opportunities to generate profit but also to have a meaningful impact on communities and even countries.
Likewise with sustainable investment, not only a buzzphrase but a game-changer in terms of benefits to humanity, and with cross-border collaborations between families that can transform relations between countries and present unique chances for growth and change.
Among this packed programme you will have plenty of time for hosted and informal networking, which is one of the hallmarks of our in-person events for which there is simply no digital substitute. The event will gather more than 80 single family offices from Europe and the UK with our usual highly rewarding 70:30 split of family offices to service providers. We very much look forward to seeing you, and making up for lost time.
The Alduaij family office has a long and glorious history in Kuwait as one of the most prominent and respected business forces.
The Alduaij family business, Alea Global, has won several awards including The European Award, and the CEO Award two years running. Head of the family office, Mohammad Alduaij, has won the Man of the Year award for his work connecting other equally exciting and well-respected family offices around the world.
Through their networks, they have formed strong personal and professional relationships with other family offices across the globe, all sharing much common ground and a willingness to work together.
Mohammad Alduaij, has been a conference speaker for the past 10 years, appearing at events all over the world. It was during his time touring the conference circuit that Mohammad first thought of bringing together his conference experience, and his special insight into the world’s most prestigious family offices.
The result is a conference that unites family offices with each other, as well as giving businesses and entrepreneurs unprecedented access to this unique and powerful network.
