Family Offices 2021 Private Investment Strategies: A Roundtable Recap


As the ASEAN region comes out of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fundnel speaks with leaders on private market opportunities for family offices in a post-pandemic world.

As the region eases out of the COVID-19 pandemic, our belief in the future of private investments is buoyed by growing interest in the space from family office investors within our network.

We were honoured to have Han Wee Tan, Partner, Wealth & Asset Management Consulting at EY Singapore moderate a discussion with Carlos Camacho, Head of Investments Development at Fundnel, Huiting Koh, Partner at Altara Ventures, and Marco Cora, Managing Director at Azimut Investment Management on private market opportunities for family offices in a post-COVID world.

Watch the discussion above for an hour of insights including:
