THE FAMILY CAPITAL 700

The Benelux Family Capital Ecosystem – The Region’s Top Family Offices

The Benelux region – The Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg – is one of the most vibrant centres of family investment groups in Europe. Many family offices in the region are linked to family businesses, but there is also a dynamic entrepreneurial community, which in recent years has created new wealth and investment offices. 

The Netherlands, where globally recognised brands like Henikien and Randstad have created very wealthy family dynasties, stand out. But the country has many less well-known dynasties. In fact, the Netherlands has a reputation of very discreet wealthy family dynasties who avoid the public’s attention. 

One notable aspect of the Dutch family office culture is the prevalence of impact-focused investment offices. At least four on the Family Capital ranking have an impact-only investment focus.

Like the Netherlands, Belgium has its fair share of old family business dynasties, who’ve established investment offices. There are also a number of very successful local financiers whose businesses are centred on their investment offices, many of which have worldwide holdings. 

A notable feature of the country’s family investment ecosystem is the large number of fortunes connected to pharmaceutical businesses. And many of these offices are channelling investments into biotech, as Family Capital has reported on numerous times. 

Luxembourg, given its tax advantages and highly developed financial sector, has attracted global money and many of the country’s family offices have been set up by families from outside of the Duchy.
