Family Office Jobs
Many institutional allocators, those running pension funds or endowment funds are moving into family office portfolio management roles. At the same time, traditional private banking and wealth management professionals also find the thought of working with less clients that each have more money very appealing due to the level of service delivery and attention to detail that it can sometimes allow. Family office jobs can pay anywhere from $45,000 a year to $1M+ bonuses or participation in deals completed while acting as a CIO or CEO of a large family office. With new family offices being started every day, we have had over 250 professionals enroll in the QFOP program over the last two years, looking to become more well qualified to work in the industry.
