Sir Anthony Ritossa’s 15th GFOIS

Fairmont Monte Carlo Hotel, June 30, 2021


Investor Summit Explores Global Opportunities
June 30 – July 2, 2021

“Our world, Post-pandemic, is rapidly changing. By living in the present and adapting to our new reality, we come together to share the best advice on preserving our human capital and planet for our future generations.”

– Sir Anthony Ritossa


Exploring Succession Planning, Impact Investing and Human Capital.
Across two days of thought-provoking conversation, networking and cross-border leadership, members of elite family offices convened safely in person for the first time since Europe’s lockdown, creating an exciting opportunity to explore succession planning, impact investing and human capital.

There was a common understanding amongst our Family Offices, Investors and Entrepreneurs that the wining mannerism after our first wave of COVID is to be true to ourselves, be passionate, remain humble, work hard and keep educating ourselves daily.


His Royal Highness Prince Michel de Yougoslavie

“It is an honour and a pleasure to be the 11th Global Family Office Investment Grand Ambassador in Monaco on July 28-30, 2020.

I have taken part in many events in the past years, and have always been amazed at the quality of the participants and at the wealth of information that was circulated.

I look forward to being with all of you very soon.”

Prince Michel de Yougoslavie is an investment executive socialite and philanthropist. Prince Michael is a member of the House of Karađorđević and a Prince of Yugoslavia as a patrilineal descendant of Alexander Karađorđević, Prince of Serbia. He is also the grandson of King Umberto of Italy.


Chairman’s Message

“There’s an understanding that those with the most resources have the most responsibility for improving the world. For this reason, I carefully curate my events and I spend a lot of time getting to know my attendees. The waiting list is long and I need to make sure that every participant is a perfect fit and that they share core values with the other members.

I cherrypicked the best aspects of different conferences I attended in the past, and created my first summit in Dubai with 60 delegates. Since then, we have grown to become the largest family gathering in the world.

The number of family offices is “booming”, something that I put down to a combination of factors including continued global uncertainty, new investment opportunities, and multigenerational wealth preservation.

The biggest have become deal powerhouses, capable of competing with global banks and private equity firms on big transactions. – Sir Anthony Ritossa, Chairman



“The many dynamic exchanges among our international Thought Leaders and sealed partnerships was impressive.

This interactive ambience would not have been possible without the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and the tremendous support of the Monaco Economic Board, Monaco Association for Financial Activities, and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. A special thank you to our Summit Grand Ambassador, H.R.H. Prince Michel de Yougoslavie, to our Conference Chairman, Markus Lehner, and to our esteemed delegates who ventured to travel from all over the world to join us in a safe harbour environment.”

– Sir Anthony Ritossa


Being part of a family office himself, Sir Anthony Ritossa understands what is essential to families and corporations. He includes this in the conference agenda, creating a unique environment and a lovely ambience.

It’s a passion project of mine, says Sir Anthony Ritossa, it’s been a great journey. I love hearing the stories that come out of these events. It’s exciting bringing brilliant people together, and it’s an honour to have the support of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.


Sir Anthony appoints Markus Lehner, Principal of the Markus Lehner Family Office based in Monaco, as chair of the summit.

“It’s an honour and a privilege,” says Markus Lehner. “Anthony’s summits are one of the best seminars in this field, if not the best, and I am delighted to be asked to be chair.

“The timing of the summit is perfectly chosen. Right now, we are living in a very interesting time – meaning that there are chances that you could do a lot of things wrong, not just right,” he explains. “Many crucial elements are shifting in the investment industry and in the family office space.”
