About 85% of family offices plan to increase their ESG investments in 2022, a survey from Family Office Association Hong Kong (FOAHK) showed.

From those eyeing to ramp up investments, 64% said they plan to increase allocations by more than 10%, whilst about 36% want to increase by more than 20%.

Investments (59%) is amongst the top five priorities of family offices for 2022, along with family governance (52%), tax planning (42%), succession planning (39%), and digital transformation (38%)
