Family Office Exchange Launches New FOX Private Investor Council for Dedicated, Sophisticated Investors

CHICAGO, June 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Family Office Exchange (FOX), a global membership organization of enterprise families and their key advisors, today announced the formation of the FOX Private Investor Council™, a new Council-level membership specifically for successful sophisticated investors who make their own investment decisions and consider different risk and reward dynamics than most other investors. This membership allows them to collaborate with other independent investors to share ideas and take advantage of the latest thinking brought to the table by FOX-selected industry experts.

“The members of this Council are primarily focused on their investing activity, and they are the ultimate decision makers,” said Alexandre Monnier, president of Family Office Exchange. “They operate with great independence but know that they would benefit from having a working group of other top-notch practitioners to test their ideas, stimulate their thinking, and benchmark their results. That is the need this Council serves.”

“The advantage of belonging to the FOX Private Investor Council is that there is a constant stream of new ideas flowing into the discussion,” added Karen Clark, managing director at FOX and leader of this Council. “The quality of the group is not limited to the experience of those in the room which is considerable in the first place. Cutting edge ideas are brought into the discussion by experts to elevate the discussion.”

The Council will meet twice a year. An April meeting will coincide with the FOX Spring Global Investor Forum in San Francisco and a September meeting with the FOX Autumn Global Investor Forum in New York City.

Membership will include admission to the two FOX Global Investment Forums, the FOX Global Owners Forum (February in Florida), the two Council meetings, the advice of a Council leader, and access to the FOX Direct Investing Network, the FOXChat™ member only online discussion, as well as 24/7 access to the FOX online Knowledge Center.

Councils are the highest level of engagement at Family Office Exchange. Approximately 30% of FOX members belong to one of the 12 different FOX Councils, which provide heightened interaction among closely matched peers who are working through a relevant curriculum designed by FOX to foster their personal and professional skills.
