With innovation in technology moving at breakneck speed and more power in our pocket than ever before, expert speakers will examine how family office structures are adapting to meet the needs of both Generation X and Y and how the industry is responding in an increasingly dynamic environment. It will also explore future trends in alternative asset classes and wealth distribution.
