Diplomatic World n°36 – Autumn 2012 : interview

Mr. Verhoeven, as a partner at C&V Family Office, would you please explain to our readers who you are and who you are intended for?

C&V Family Office is a 100% Belgian multi-family office with offices in Antwerp and Turnhout. What exactly is a family office? As an independent financial adviser, we provide services to wealthy parties in the areas of banking, financial, tax and legal matters. In contrast to financial institutions or insurance brokers, we sell no investment products at all, so we receive no commission whatsoever from banks and asset managers; we only provide services… in the service of our clientèle.
