Family Office


The valuable solution for high net worth families seeking expert management and bespoke private services.

Securing wealth for years to come.


Pathways has an intimate understanding of the needs of its Asia- based clients, including High Net Worth Families (HNWFs) requiring specialised handling.

A ‘Family Office’ is a private wealth management advisory firm designed to serve HNWFs. Different from traditional wealth management firms, the family office platform provides you a comprehensive outsourced solution for managing finances and investments, including budgeting, insurance, charitable giving, family- owned business and wealth transfer and tax services.

A complete, well-developed alternative investment strategy run from a family office enjoys competitive advantage and more control over investments. This includes the ability to conduct due diligence on money managers or optimize a portfolio of investments for tax purposes.

Pathways assists HNWIs and HNWFs in forming a family office with a customised structure to protect their legacy and secure family wealth long into the future.


  Advantages of the Family Office

Ease of operation

British Virgin Island Business Companies have always been popular in Asia. The family office utilises their framework and shares key features of BVI companies in providing familiarity to individuals and families, making the family office easy to operate.
Control and minimising risk

By sitting on the board of directors of the family office, the individual or family can make decisions quickly without having to wait on an independent trustee. In fact, the family office can carry out the trustee function, taking on any risk linked to assets and managing operations of the business.

HNWFs can create bespoke structures to manage their wealth using family offices. For example, a family office can set up multiple trusts to keep certain assets separate from one another, holding different assets for different beneficiaries.


Mergers and Acquisitions

We offer flexible schemes that reap substantial rewards for your company.

Facing M&A head-on to get the deal done.


The reality of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) transactions in today’s global business environment is that they are always complex, particularly in the instance of cross-border deals.

The overarching challenge of M&A lies in accounting for each party’s organisational and sociocultural functioning, and ensuring that synergies are aggressively pursued from Day 1. Pathways uses an integrated, level-headed approach to M&A that links acquisition strategy, due diligence and merger integration. Whether the objective is growth, joint ventures and alliances or divestitures, our expert advisors make a careful evaluation to identify all critical factors that serve to attain the deal.

By facing the complexities of M&A head-on — clarifying the context of the deal and positioning you to achieve its desired outcome — Pathways helps you successfully meet the needs of all your stakeholder groups.



We aim to keep fees low so you have more money to invest.

Trust and transparency.


Understanding how wealth management advisors are paid is critical when engaging a management firm.

Normally we charge clients on an hourly rate basis. Our hourly rate varies according the seniority and experience of advisors assigned to a specific task and the nature of the services and complexity of your specific circumstances.

All client matters are appropriately assigned to fee earners with the requisite experience and qualified expertise.

Depending on the nature of your matter, we may consider charging a lump sum fee.

We also offer a legal retainer system, as an alternative, which involves the payment of fixed sum or a fixed annual fee to cover a specified rate of services.

We offer clients fair and transparent fee structures.
