A small bit of housekeeping: Please check your spam folder to be sure my personal email firstname.lastname@example.org is on your safe senders list. I suspect you might find a few emails there from me over the past year. Thank you!
The winter holidays are a great time for reflection. This past October we hosted our 8th Annual Single Family Office Symposium in partnership with University of St. Thomas. TFOA members flew in from across the globe to participate in person, while those who could not physically attend participated virtually. I’m delighted to say in the past year we have grown our community of family offices in a meaningful way, while maintaining the trust and close relationships that make TFOA a safe and valuable community for our members. Most importantly, our annual symposium allowed us to contribute a meaningful student scholarship to the schools we partner with, which is very gratifying on many levels.
In the realm of public speaking and events, TFOA hosted, moderated, and was featured in a variety of podcasts and summits last year. In all these activities we aim to provide a thoughtful perspective on the role family offices play within the broader realm of capital formation and management. We also authored a number of free whitepapers that were well received by the family office community, including a whitepaper to describe the history of TFOA which shows how we’ve been able to grow as a values-aligned and conscious capital community: Our Story
Last year also saw the launch of TFOA Fund I, LP a members-only investment vehicle to provide support for some of the proprietary deal flow TFOA members have access to. While it isn’t possible to share all the details in this note, we believe having this capability is a true win, win for our members and the providers of unique deal flow our network attracts.
So that's a wrap for 2022. We’re glad to count you as a fellow traveler on this journey and please do let us know if we can ever be helpful in any way!
Happy Holidays and a Prosperous New Year,
Marc J. Sharpe
