The saying is "once you know one family office, you know one family office." They may have commonalities but most of my knowledge would be useless for you. It's a good niche with good pay and it's usually not too many hours. Things are changing though. I'm glad I'm in it but I had no idea what I was signing up for when I accepted the job.

My wife works in a family office. There was only 2 family office jobs posted within a year and there was a lot of applications. Typical hours are 40 hours a week. You need heavy hedge fund, private equity, and private wealth background. Without all 3 most will reject you.
