Family Office Labs in the Deloitte Greenhouse­® Space

Planting the seeds for family office effectiveness now and in the future

​Family offices and the executives who manage them are under growing pressure to deliver value. Family Office labs engage people intellectually, physically, and emotionally so they can take problem-solving to a new level.​

Family Office Labs

Deloitte’s Family Office Labs are designed to assist family office executives, high net worth families, and other stakeholders in driving significant value from the family office organization and its resources. Since no two family offices are alike, each lab is customized for the particular family office’s circumstances. The Family Office Labs include:

  • Family Office Executive Transition Lab: A lab that guides a newly hired or newly promoted family office executive through the development of an actionable plan for a successful transition into the new role. It is a one-day experience designed to help new family office executives develop a plan to accelerate success that is directly aligned with the family’s goals and aspirations.
  • Family Office Lab Experience: A lab that helps family office leaders and their teams step outside business as usual to address complex challenges. It is a one to two-day experience designed to addresses your challenges around data, process, technology, and talent, considering an overall transformation to meet the future family office needs and circumstances.
  • Family Office Life Events Lab: A lab driven by major events in a  high net worth family’s life. Each lab is specially designed to help the family and family office navigate issues associated with the family’s complex financial and personal challenges and opportunities.
  • Family Office Formation Lab: A lab intended to assist a family and their trusted advisers with identifying and addressing the numerous considerations associated with forming or restructuring a family office. The intent is to provide a means to build consensus and make thoughtful decisions in an accelerated timeframe.
