Family Office Marketplace

Rank: Senior Chimp | 25

New to WSO. I noticed there is not much chatter on the Family Office marketplace. I work with a group that is focused on making direct investments in operating companies funded directly by family offices (off of their balance sheet), rather than through a private equity fund structure. Curious to know what the community thinks about this model and if any of you monkeys are interviewing with firms in the space.

One of my co-workers at a small hedge fund I used to work at started out of undergrad in a family office. If you'll be helping with investment origination and analyzing different opportunities, the experience can directly transfer to hedge funds. Granted it might be a good idea to get your MBA before attempting to break into hedge funds, there are definitely opportunities to make the transition.
