DC Finance is proud to present the Semi Annual TLV FO Conference.
With over 150 Ultra and High Net Worth Individuals and Family Office Executives, this is one of the world's largest wealth management events held Annualy at the Tel Aviv stock Exchange (TASE), Tel Aviv.
This prestigious conference provides an annual meeting place for the Israeli wealth family office and high net worth individuals community.
This Conference will be didicated to High Tech Family Office Meetings which is a part of a series of select Semi Annual events dedicated to investments of high net worth individuals and single family office executives in cutting edge Technology Opportunities.
Investment opportunities in innovative technologies are increasingly being recognized by the next generation of wealthy families and their family office executives. Family members are more open to exploring opportunities far from their family’s core business and traditional investment portfolios of real estate, stocks, commodities, etc. They understand exciting opportunities exist within high level technology sectors and see the wealth being created, seeking to diversify their portfolios whilst waiting for the next unicorn opportunity.
Unlike traditional institutional investors, high net worth individuals and single family offices are uniquely positioned to invest in innovative technologies. In part due to their freedom of cross-sector investments, appetite and ability to invest in different company stages, different growth perspectives and market caps with more flexibility than institutions that must adhere to specific holding periods due to a fund’s timeline or structure. They are more open to the idea of risk than institutional funds that are highly restricted and regulated. Family offices see this as an exciting investment adventure. With flexibility, patience and resources, private wealth creates the ideal long-term investor base.
Investors are on the constant hunt for returns looking to tap into innovations from Fintech to Aerospace, Life Science to the Internet, Cleantech to Agtech. Network with some of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time and those SFOs who know the value of innovative technologies as they seek to turbo-boost their portfolios. Come and discuss the latest cutting edge ideas, tech trends and investing models in a unique environment.
Come and meet innovation.
The conference's success throughout the year testifies to the current demand in Israel for reliable information. The Israeli market in unique and combines three inflows of liquid capital – new wealth from IPOs and Tech exists, Old wealth that is selling its family business once it reached the 3rd generation stage and international capital coming from the ultra-high net worth Jewish community.

Globes Feb.7th 2017-Julius Baer
Since 2008, Israel is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. According to various International Accounting and Consulting Firms, Israel is one of the top ten markets where the percentage of wealthy individuals (with liquidity exceeding 1M$), is of the highest ratio in comparison to the country's population.
On top of that, "most of this wealthy population is concentrated in the towns of Tel-Aviv, Hertzeliya and Jerusalem.
"The growth derives not only from high tech exits. Israelis are in general entrepreneurs in the fields of real estate and heavy industries as well. It is amazing how many Israelis we meet in various countries. That is why Israel is one of our most strategic markets".
