Uncertainty regarding financial regulatory reform, particularly the SEC's definition of "family office" under a provision of the Hedge Fund Transparency Act, has prompted many wealthy individuals and family office executives to re-evaluate their current office structure. With this in mind, Family Office Exchange (FOX), Chicago, will hold a workshop designed for wealthy individuals and executives of single-family offices wishing to consider better options. "Is Regulation in Your Future? Structural Options for Private Wealth Management" is scheduled for November 10  and 11 at The Peninsula Chicago.
