“Thank you for considering Singapore as a potential location to establish a family office.

With Singapore’s strategic location at the heart of Southeast Asia, the country can provide excellent global connectivity to serve fast-growing markets in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Like yourself, many of our international clients are considering establishing family offices in Singapore.”
