Operating a management office in DIFC provides access to a variety of professional services from one location, such as: wealth and asset managers, private bankers, legal firms, accounting firms, recruitment firms, consultants, corporate governance experts, international tax advisers, captive insurers and experts on Islamic finance, as well as access to capital markets and corporate financiers.

A home for family business

Single Family Offices (SFOs) have additional benefit from a confidential yet transparent regulatory framework that excludes them from many of the regulatory constraints placed on conventional organisations in the centre, and is the first in the world to define a family office in legal terms. These regulations, combined with estate and succession planning advisers, corporate governance experts and other available professional services, make DIFC an ideal jurisdiction for family offices.
