FACT Middle East, a specialist family office and part of Swiss family office group LP Suisse Group, has said that it is now fully operational and open for business, offering upscale family office advisory services in Qatar.

This follows the approval of a license from the Qatar Financial Centre Authority (QFCA ).

The group will now offer HNW, UHNW and family owned business in Qatar with fully-integrated family office consultancy services such as business structuring, tax optimization, relocation and education support services, succession planning as well as family governance.

FACT Middle East founder and CEO Danilo Larini said, "2015 is a year for growth, and we want to ensure our clients feel at home with us as we meet their needs. Our vision for this new office is to become the Qatari gateway to Switzerland – providing the best possible family office, corporate and family business structuring services for our local and regional clients."

Nader Al Khalfan, CEO for FACT Middle East, will manage client relationships in Qatar and the region.

LP Suisse Group already has offices in London, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Hong Kong.
