Family offices

Among the world's largest hubs for private wealth and family offices.

Among the world's largest hubs for private wealth and family offices.


HNW individuals in Dubai as of 2023

US$517 billion

(or AED1.89 trillion) private wealth in Dubai – the largest in the region

Strong growth potential for global family offices

The UAE hosts over 75% of the region’s family offices, and more than half of those are in Dubai. From here, companies can tap into US$3 trillion (AED11 trillion) in private wealth within an hour's flight. This is why the world's high net worth individuals (HNWI) and ultra high net worth individuals (UHNWI) prefer to operate out of Dubai. 

Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) – MEASA’s leading finance epicentre – forms the core of this dynamic ecosystem. More than 300 wealth and asset management enterprises totalling US$450 billion (AED1.65 trillion) in private wealth have their offices in DIFC. 

In alignment with D33 goals, Dubai aims to be one of the world’s top four financial centres. To achieve this, the city has improved the ease of doing business for HNWI and UHNWI. In particular, the 2023 DIFC Family Arrangement Regulations ensure seamless support for the financial and investment needs of single and multi-family offices.
