Campden Conferences is proud to announce our 15th annual European Family Office Conference chaired by Jamie Cayzer-Calvin.
Although there is cautious optimism that we may now be seeing the fabled green shoots of economic recovery much of Europe remains mired in recession. Families and their offices have managed to weather much of the storm not least because they have remained agile and prepared to take a long term view but also because they have demonstrated a willingness to hear and learn from other’s experiences and expertise.
Now in 15th year Campden’s European Family Office conference offers a unique chance for families to meet and benchmark their own experiences with like-minded individuals and families. With the emphasis on the peer to peer learning the conference will focus on families’ real experiences of investing in troubling times as well how they have continued to flourish as a family and member of the wider community. This year the emphasis of the conference will not just be on how families are investing their wealth but also how they are sustaining their legacy and future by encouraging their next generation and focusing their natural talents on philanthropic projects.
We are delighted to once again be welcoming Jamie Cayzer-Colvin, Executive Director of Caledonian Investments, to chair the conference and welcome an impressive number of family members and the executives to the stage.
