Family offices as private assets investors

Private family capital is larger than private equity and venture capital combined. The increasing concentration of wealth held by very wealthy families is fueling the growth of family offices around the globe. Luxembourg hosts over 100 family offices and is an attractive jurisdiction for more to come. Designed to preserve wealth for future generations, family offices offer a high degree of independence with regards to investment choices and have become a mainstream investor into private assets over the last years. Next to the returns offered by private assets, it is also the entrepreneurial DNA of family offices that attracts them to private assets and often asks for an active role to play as shareholders. What do family offices mean to Luxembourg and the private assets market? We will discuss opportunities, challenges and perspectives.

What to expect when structuring your NAV facility

Session kindly facilitated and sponsored by Allen & Overy

Financing products come in different shapes and forms throughout the lifecycle of a fund. Net asset value (NAV) facilities permit the raising of new financing backed by a fund’s portfolio of assets, in support of, among others, liquidity management, follow-on investments and beyond. The structuring options are numerous and NAV facilities can be found across asset classes and investment strategies. This panel will discuss the product landscape of NAV facilities, features across asset classes and key concepts.
