There are two categories of family office, the single and the multifamily office. The former are created by the business/family group themselves, and are composed of family members and financial advisors as consultants.

Sometimes, the Group investment holding company is used, or another company created for this purpose. The multifamily office have two or three investment executives with extensive market experience, and a back office structure composed of five to ten people. Generally they provide investment advice to families. They are responsible for operations and manage relationships with banks or stock-brokers.
