How family office internal controls safeguard assets and mitigate risks
The short answer is to fashion a practical, tailored approach for family office internal controls and risk management — not to add red tape — but to create repeatable, transparent, and fundamentally transferable procedures that help manage risk and protect the family’s assets.
In this whitepaper, we outline four key areas to help family offices take a pragmatic approach to internal controls and risk management:
- Segregation of duties
- Transaction volume
- Managing complexity
- Succession planning
While internal controls, policies, and business processes may not seem like the most exciting topic, they help manage risk and protect the family’s assets so it can focus on what’s most important: carrying out its mission and achieving its goals.
