The ultra-wealthy private fund trend - the rise in direct investment and how to structure it
The International Family Offices Journal
Vol. 7 - Iss. 2 pp. 24–26
Alasdair McLaren and Richard Behmer discuss the increased use of private funds as a vehicle of choice for wealthy families to structure their investments, particularly when different branches of the family invest together (or when different families invest together). The authors highlight the benefits from the use of private funds, including ease of transfer of assets, improved transparency and increased motivation of managers.
