Family Offices are sometimes seen by EP as 'Unicorns' because of their inaccessibility. There has also been an assumption in some quarters that they do not pay enough attention to the type of Executive Security they procure. Today we are pleased to welcome Olivia Cooper, Head of Private Wealth and Family Office at Axiom DWFM to set the record straight and ask:

  • How can Executive Protection better approach Family Offices when looking to provide services?
  • Where can EP add more value and become a trusted security advisor?
  • What is keeping UHNWs up at night especially in the coming months?
  • How commonplace is the convergence between Wealth Management and Risk Management within a Family Office?
  • What would make a trusted advisor stand out and will a firm professional assessment be more respected than becoming the 'department of yes'?
  • How is succession planning related to Executive Risk Management?
