The Wealth Mosaic Middle East WealthTech Landscape Report 2023
The path to the family office of the future. Bryan Henning, SVP, Head of International, Eton Solutions International says that a robust platform combined with solid data management and next-generation technologies can future proof the family office. Professionals working in family offices are experiencing significant and increasing complexity. Manual, high-risk work processes such as spreadsheets and point systems erroneously rely on human reconciliation – leading to incomplete, delayed, and inaccurate reporting and the inefficient use of high-value human resources. Moreover, manual calculations inherently lack cybersecurity, disaster recovery, and business continuity processes and skills. But providing accurate information is the first job of any office, and it directly impacts every other job the office does.
