Munich is one of the richest parts of the Federal Republic of Germany. The cityscape of the metropolis with 1.5 million inhabitants is adorned with a multitude of magnificent Gründerzeit buildings and heavy industrial headquarters such as BMW and Siemens. The mix of a strong economy, a vibrant cultural scene and good rail and air connections make Munich an access point for the investment vehicles of wealthy families, the so-called family offices. A distinction is made between single-family offices and multi-family offices. Single-family offices manage the money of a family or family tribe, while multi-family offices group the money of several wealthy families or advise them.
