Who we are

Vahe Vartanian


Vahe is Founder and CEO of the Global Family Office Community (GFOC), and is a globally recognised leader in the family office space. Vahe created GFOC to provide a safe and comfortable setting where family offices can meet each other; share ideas, stories and best practice; and learn from experts, in an otherwise private and lonely environment. This has now grown to be a globally cohesive group with nearly 1,500 family office members.

Vahe expanded GFOC, the umbrella group, to provide a broader set of activities and programme of events throughout the year serving family office needs. These include private family office dinners, seminars, the flagship renowned Global Family Office Conference, the annual Family Office Retreat in the South of France, as well as other international summits, such as the USA Family Office Conference.

GFOC also has within its portfolio: GFOConnect, its online community platform with App; GFOC Journal, its annual publication; the Global Family Principals CommunityFamilyOfficeRecruitment.com, the online recruitment platform for family offices which serves as a valuable resource for not only talent, but also news, thought-leadership, and approved supplier directories.

Vahe is a trusted advisor to families, family offices, and those companies who serve them.

Vahe has grown GFOC to be the leading community for family offices. GFOC is supported by an experienced and respected Advisory Board. GFOC is very much a group driven by family offices, and for family offices.

Vahe strongly believes in family, and GFOC is very much a family business which the family offices appreciate.

Vahe is based in London, UK, but GFOC operates internationally.

Vahe is Co-Founder of the Global Next Gen Community.

Vahe successfully spent his early career in marketing management across sectors, but finally in financial services. He is a Chartered Marketer and graduated with a Masters degree in Marketing (MA), having previously obtained a BA (Hons).

Vahe is honoured to be a Goodwill Ambassador for the Aurora Prize.
