Indian Association of Alternative Investment Funds (IAAIF) is supporting the upcoming event, Family Business Summit India 2017 (FBSI17) scheduled on November 10th at Hotel Shangri La in New Delhi.  FBSI17 is being organised by Association of International Wealth Management of India (AIWMI).

This inaugural edition of FBSI17 will bring together entrepreneurs from multi-generational businesses and those building a legacy for their next generations to discuss the most pressing issues faced by family business owners and get inspired by some of the most successful family business leaders from across the country.

The Family Business Summit India is based on the concepts of business succession and wealth preservation brought into focus by AIWMI’s flagship event, the Family Office Summit India (FOSI). Beyond that, FBSI17 will also cover important areas of Family Governance, Sustained Togetherness, Competitive Advantage, Investment Trends, Alternative Investments and much more.

This Summit will provide an excellent opportunity to listen and interact with thought leaders and business leaders share their knowledge and experiences. This is an event primarily for business families but is also a learning ground for private bankers, wealth managers and advisors who are looking for a more in-depth understanding of their High Networth clients’ needs and can re-align their strategies according to their requirements.
