UAE-based Emirates Family Office Association (EFOA) and the Association of Family Offices in Asia (AFO) are teaming up to pursue development in the family office and sustainable sectors.

Under the partnership, AFO and EFOA will work closely in launching various initiatives, including the organisation of thematic workshops and conferences, forming the delegations that seek for regional economic acceleration and cultural exchange, hosting next-generation leadership programmes and sharing talent and network for benefiting members in the communities.

Adam Ladjadj, founder of the Emirates Family Office Association, said: “This partnership will not just add value to the regional community but also place a new benchmark to the family office space globally.”

Eva Law, chairman and founder of the Association of Family Offices in Asia, added: “AFO is glad to collaborate with EFOA from the UAE for developing the regional family office ecosystem.

“We expect the partnership may bring positive contribution to build a stronger economic link among GCC and Asia regions, while our family offices communities can share expert and network resources that aid their pursuance on family legacy, sustainable development of their family businesses and exploration of opportunities.”
