Family Offices Going Direct vs Hedge Funds
By Brian DeLucia
While the hedge fund industry has taken a downturn within our family office circles, it is not a blanket statement as many like to through around clique statements like all families are going direct.
Going direct and helping scale real estate endeavors or elevating businesses to the next level works for families with the infrastructure and skill sets from their past experiences to bring value and drive compelling economics works for some families.
I am one of those who advocate the power we have as families to become leaders over the next generation of business.
However, it is not fair to throw all hedge funds under the bus.
There remain elite managers within the hedge fund industry that will continue to produce compelling results.
There are always two sides to every story.
