Can my wealth work in all the ways I want it to?

From family issues to wealth transfer, asset protection and location to business succession planning – this is your family office – focused on helping you recognise the past, inform the present and protect the future.

What is a family office?

The roots of family offices can be traced back to the sixth century – to king’s stewards responsible for managing the regal wealth; who over time widened their stewardship to include the aristocracy.

The modern concept of a family office was developed in the 19th century by J.P. Morgan and the Rockefeller family who developed family-owned organisations to manage both their private wealth and family affairs. Over time, as experience and expertise grew, offices opened up their services to other non-related families, evolving from single family offices into multi-family offices.

Built by the Scott family to serve their wealth and the wealth of families like yours, Sandaire is the truest form of a multi-family office, bringing real understanding, deep knowledge and generations of first-hand experience to your family’s unique needs.

Our Family Office team acts as the central hub for your family’s finances, coordinating internally and externally to deliver the synchronised outcomes and financial picture you require. Through our Investment Office, Real Estate and Private Equity teams we can deliver the multi-disciplinary advice your need, while keeping your interests at the heart of our service.

“My great-grandfather became a pioneer when he founded Provincial Insurance. It makes me very proud that, a century later, I’ve had the opportunity to lead this respected, family-owned business that remains true to his values.”
