According to Financial Times - A boom in the number of Asian family offices has long been predicted; now it could be starting in earnest. Wealthy Asians are finally embracing family offices. As recently as 2008 there were no more than 50 family offices in Asia, yet by 2012 that had jumped to about 200. This is still a tiny figure compared with 3,000 in the US and 1,000 in Europe. Asia is now home to a third of ultra-wealthy people—defined as those with net assets of more than $30m—but less than 5 per cent of family offices.
