Services for Family Offices
Metro brings a long track record of working for Heads of State, CEO's, Diplomats and High Profile individuals around the world providing services, often at short notice, and with the highest possible levels of discretion. This positions us well for supporting the more niche requirements of Family Offices.
Family Offices are generally very well served for Wealth Management and Business Management Systems. More often than not these Cloud/SAAS (Software as a service) based systems are affordable and easy to implement and use. They readily generate information managers need to support decision making, helping them to be more proactive, to deliver compliance reports quicker and providing better transparency too.
Looking more broadly at the needs of the Family Office staff and the family themselves there are, however, technology gaps. Gaps that create value for the Family and gaps that can be readily plugged too.
Examples of 3 services many Family Offices are missing includes the following.
email communication is fundamentally insecure. emails can be read in transit and the sender needs to know that the email was received only by the intended recipient. This is all possible today by using Microsoft Office 365 services from Metro, a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider.
Fake mobile phone and WiFi networks do exist. Indeed these fake masts can be purchased on the DarkWeb for under $500 USD. This enables criminals to intercept your calls and capture data sent over your mobile devices and if that is done then your privacy has gone and your security has been compromised. Metro is a partner to Armour Communications. Armour is probably the world leading provider of secure mobile technology in the world. It's an App that converts your smartphone or computer and adds Military Grade Encryption throughout and the cost is less than £50/user/month.
Family Office assets often includes the multiple homes of the Family around the world. By equipping your teams with Augmented reality headsets your managers can get upto date information about your properties and assets, get remote support from experts e.g. turning off the water supply in the event of a leak and your security teams will be able to be more effective by enhancing the way they provide security to the family.
