Managed IT for Private & Family Offices
The Family Office – A family office is a privately held company that handles investment management and wealth management for families – usually (in Australian and New Zealand terms) high-net-worth or ultra-high-net-worth families. Whilst no TWO family offices are the same, they all usually share a common goal – to effectively grow and transfer wealth across the family generations.
There is a well-trodden saying in the Family Office space “if you’ve worked with one Family Office, then you’ve worked with ONE Family Office. Anyone with experience in the family office space will tell you that every family office is unique, and each have very different requirements.
The cookie cutter approach to IT & IT Security so often seen with Australian IT firms or one-man band IT professionals, simply does not work for this sector.
Your trusted partner
DSC has 11 years of experience working with Australian private & family offices. Being a part a Family Office itself, DSC understands the complexities that multigenerational family offices can encounter, and it is these bespoke requirements that have driven the development of the Family Office Managed IT model.
DSC focuses on the holistic IT and Security requirements of the family. From family members’ mobile devices, tablets, laptops, and desktops, to the family homes, family holiday assets, boat, RV etc, nothing is left to chance.
The DSC Family Office Managed IT model caters for a raft of accessibility scenarios to mitigate the ever growing risks for Australian Families – whether it be family members working from multiple locations, travelling to the remote parts of Australia or globally,
We understand that peace of mind comes from knowing where your data is, what your IT risk exposure is, and knowing that you have a team that is accessible, knowledgeable and is safely managing your IT and Security risk 24×7, 365 days per year.
What can DSC do to assist
DSC provides a single point of contact for the Family Office Principal or members to assist with all IT and Security requirements. No matter how unique the request is, our expert & experienced team are always there to help.
We provide a true 24×7 service for your primary office, additional satellite offices, temporary offices, connected homes, global roaming family members and more. All our services are underpinned by an extensive security suite and packaged to suit your specific circumstances.
We find that Private / Family Office members and executives are often time poor, require short calls (that are often time-sensitive), and need definitive solutions to their IT needs. With robust processes in place, DSC can get to work immediately to implement solutions, enabling the family and its members to get on with their activity for the day/night.
DSC has extensive experience in delivering Managed IT Services. The Family Office Managed IT service offering is adapted from our Corporate Managed Services model that we created back in 2007. It is a tried and tested model, which has gone through continuous improvement and development in the ever-changing world of technology and security based on our client’s feedback. You can read more about that Managed Service model in the Corporate Managed Services area of this Website.
The IT requirements and security for your Private Office or Family Office need not be your primary focus – let it be ours.
