BlackRock’s latest insights for family office investors

Inside view: BlackRock Global Family Office Survey

2020 was a year unlike any other.

To understand how family offices across the globe are navigating it, we:

Surveyed 185 participants
Conducted 20 interviews

They gave us the inside view.

3 key themes emerged:

1. Portfolios prove resilient but concerns grow
2. The growing importance of alternatives
3. Increased interest in sustainable investing

1. Portfolios prove resilient but concerns grow

55% of family offices describe their outlook as neutral to positive proving resilience despite recent turbulence

Only 23% of family offices felt the need for material change in their portfolios but diversification is a growing concern

BlackRock View
We believe that all investors would benefit from reviewing their strategic asset allocation to account for the changing macro environment and uncertainty in future asset class returns.

2. The growing importance of alternatives

49% of family offices intend to increase their allocation to alternatives over the next 5 to 10 years

Private equity and private credit are key areas of focus.

55% of family offices view private equity as a key driver of returns and intend to grow their exposure to this asset class

40% intend to increase future exposure in private credit, seeking enhanced yields and alternatives to public fixed income allocations

3 .Increased interest in sustainable investing

80% of family offices now include some form of sustainable investing within their portfolio

This trend is likely to continue due to both generational pressure and increasing public awareness.

“We observe within our family office that profits alone for the next generation perhaps is not enough.”  US Family Office CIO

59% of family offices do not believe they have to compromise on performance to achieve their sustainable goals

BlackRock View
We believe incorporating environment, social and governance (ESG) data and insights within the investment processes or portfolio design can lead to improved outcomes for investors.
