Over the years, there has been an increase in the number of high-net-worth families establishing family offices to manage their wealth more efficiently and ensure long-term inheritance. Singapore has become a top destination for these families due to its favorable tax regime, stability, and well-regulated financial industry. A Singapore family office provides private wealth management advisory services to high-net-worth families, including investment management, tax planning, estate planning, and wealth transfer strategies. These services are personalized and tailored to meet the unique needs of each family, allowing them to manage their wealth effectively and efficiently across generations. Overall, a Singapore family office is a popular choice for families seeking simple, complacent, workable, and tax-efficient structures for their wealth management.
In order to apply for Singapore Family Office, you must meet the following criterias:
