2015 FOX Global Investment Forum™ is designed from perspective of family office investment decision-makers to build community and provide information available nowhere else

CHICAGO, July 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Family Office Exchange (FOX), a global membership organization of enterprise families and their key advisors, has announced an investment conference designed specifically for the family office: the 2015 FOX Global Investment Forum™, September 10 at the Harvard Club in New York City.

The 2015 FOX Global Investment Forum is the first ever investment conference strictly for family offices. It will feature keynote speaker Oakleigh Thorne (CEO of Thorndale Farm, LLC and Co-President of Blumenstein / Thorne Information Partners, LLC), a highly successful family office investor with 20 years of experience as a direct investor since the sale of a fourth generation family business, Commerce Clearing House. Thorne will be giving his first person story about family office investment strategy post-liquidity event, as well as examples of current portfolio companies, including Gogo Inflight Internet.

The FOX Global Investment Forum will provide ample opportunity for networking and peer exchange with fellow top minds in the family office and investment world. It provides moderated peer dialog sessions, with small targeted breakout groups for families with internal chief investment officers, those who employ external investment officers, and those strongly interested in direct investing. The Forum will allow attendees to tap the collective wisdom and experience of true peers in a comfortable, secure setting.

“This is truly a different kind of investment forum,” says Alexandre Monnier, President of Family Office Exchange. “The 2015 FOX Global Investment Forum is the first investment conference that has been built specifically for family offices, from the ground up. We are looking forward to welcoming investment leaders from the family office world to this incredible full day event.”­­
