What about US Family Office scenario? And how international situation is going to reflect into that?

The single family office “SFO” (a private investment company created by one family of significant to internally and exclusively manage that one family’s investments and legacy) community is ever expanding in the U.S. and around the world. As long as families of wealth desire control, a single family office will always be attractive. An SFO allows for unparalled control, privacy and customization of the family’s investments and legacy. SFOs are expanding at even a faster pace internationally as significant wealth is being created in Asia, Latin America and Africa.

How Family Office are changing as professional investors? Do HNWI have taken more control than before due to the market crisis?

Yes, the response is more comprehensive in my answer to the previous question, the market crisis has led families to consider creating their own SFO for control, privacy and customization.
