8th Global Family Office
Investment Summit

2-4 March 2019. Four Seasons Resort Jumeirah Beach, Dubai

World’s Largest & Most Exclusive Gathering of Family Wealth

Hosted by Ritossa Family Office

Hosted by Ritossa Family Office, a family business dating back 600 years to the time of the Venetian Empire in Europe, and with deep roots into the Middle East, this is the 8th event in a Global Series covering Dubai, Monaco, and Miami – and the 5th one in Dubai. The most recent Summit in Dubai made global headlines as the most significant & influential family office gathering of all time.

Summit Attendees

Over 400+ Elite Family Offices, Prominent Conglomerate Business Owners, Sheikhs, Royal Families, Private Investment Companies, International Business Moguls, Sovereign Wealth Funds, & industry professionals from across the Middle East and around the globe are scheduled to attend, representing over $4 trillion in investor wealth and making it the world’s largest and most exclusive gathering of elite family office decision makers, with an investor delegate ratio of 3:1.

“Investing in a new age” is the theme for our Dubai Summit & will act as a bridge between Middle East families and their European, U.S., Asian, & Latin American counterparts to meet, network and exchange information and ideas to start the journey of discovery and venturing together between like minded peers in a safe-harbour environment.

The summit is a private forum exclusively organized by family offices for family offices, ultra elite private investors, prominent business owners, Sheikhs, Royal family members, financial families and their private offices from around the world. The summit brings together the world’s leading experts geared toward identifying actionable strategies for generating returns in a low-rate, high volatility market. Facilitated by family offices, the summit will provide two days of private peer-to-peer conversation, networking and cross-border thought leadership designed to make you think about what to look out for, how you are investing, and why?

“The most highly acclaimed gathering of Middle East & Global Wealth to date”
Anthony Ritossa

Summit Host – Anthony Ritossa, Chairman, Ritossa Family Office

Ritossa Olive Oil & Family Office represents the distillation of six hundred years of history – of a grove, a family and a region. The gnarled roots of the Ritossa olive groves have persevered through war and natural disasters, through changes of climate and country, and under the rule of warrior princes, wealthy merchant kings & modern despots. The Family Office is known for their contrarian investments which have included the US Subprime Crisis, the European Sovereign Debt & Banking Crisis, and various strategic PE, RE & blockchain allocations.

We look forward to future events.”

I enjoyed the Summit very much, interesting Speakers, nice participants and the wonderful place. I do appreciate your painstaking work for the organization and engagement of the Summit, and needless to say of course, your Hospitalities, such summit involves enormous amounts of time and energy — you must have been working so hard lately for everything to fall into place as it has. You deserve now, a well-earned rest with your lovely wife. Finally it’s certainly wonderful experience for me that your Summit has been, it brought together people from different sides of bilingualism – highly profile family offices and excellent participants.

This included identifying innovative and actionable investment strategies. The calibre of speakers and attendees was also very impressive. The venue was stunning, the hospitality warm, generous and overall supported by a wonderfully relaxed ambience.

It was an honor to Chair & Moderate at the 5th Global Family Office Investment Summit”
Hussein Sayed

CNBC Arabia Anchor & Chief Market Strategist at ForexTime (FXTM), UAE

“Anthony Ritossa raised the bar again exceeding expectations. It is a true honour for me to be part of the advisory board of the global family office investment summit that has become undoubtedly the most prestigious gathering of family offices in the world. This Dubai summit clearly opened business doors to Middle East for the family offices participating and their delegates and the location worked as perfect showcase for Dubai especially in the eyes of those that had never been here before like myself.”

Giuseppe Ambrosio

Giuseppe Ambrosio, President of the Monaco Single & Multi Family Office International Association.

“The Global Family Office Investment Summit was over-the-top excellent. I can’t remember meeting more interesting people or hearing more superb and relevant speakers. And on top of that, it was networking paradise. The speakers on blockchain technology have influenced not only my investing strategies but those of my sons as well. The highpoint for me was the performance of Carmen sponsored by Roy Niederhoffer, followed by his explanation of what Carmen was really about. It was a cultural and intellectual feast. I can’t believe how happy I am to have been a part of the Summit. Thank you for your part in my being there. Very, very best, Mitzi” Mitzi Perdue
