Singapore is an important financial center and a trade hub. It is preferred by Ultra- high net worth individuals and families as a jurisdiction to manage their wealth due to its political stability, high level of transparency and standards of governance with a robust legal and judicial framework. Prominent multinational family offices are increasingly exploring the city state as a gateway to access Asian investments. To support the growth of family offices the country has established networks and platforms for family offices networking, communication and exchange of ideas.
