Ropella Equity Ventures highly recommends these two best sellers from Richard Wilson:

The Single Family Office: Creating, Operating, and Managing Investments of a Single Family Office


The Single Family Office: Creating, Operating, and Managing the Investments of Single Family Offices is the first book to focus on providing transparent case studies, best practices, mistakes to avoid, and models to follow if you are looking to run a single family office or have one started for your family or client. As of 2015 when this book was published, we believe it transparently quotes and interviews more single family offices than every other book in print today combined. To add another dimension of value to the text, and to make it more interactive at the same time we have included 40+ interviews, and over nine hours worth of recorded webinar content.
