The Table Club Australasia was launched in 2009 with an initial group of principles from 18 prominent Australian family offices. It has since grown to encompass families that are leading their fields throughout property, resources, investment, financial services, media, manufacturing, and retail as well as others.
The family office landscape in Australia consists of a number of older families, who are in their fifth or sixth generations of wealth management as well as many more who are second or third generation. These families have mostly made their wealth in resources or property and many are now in the process of handing over the management of their assets to the younger generations. This presents a perfect opportunity to network, as many of the younger generations are looking to form their own relationships.
