and the IFOA is committed to continuing to provide education and networking and detailed case studies to UHNW throughout Asia in order to shed light on the matrix of options. Our goal is to enrich the already-trusted, impartial and successful advice delivered to the newly emerging ultra-wealthy: ƒ negotiation, communication and conflict resolution ƒ inheritance strategy ƒ focused venture philanthropy ƒ education goals ƒ wealth management ƒ compliance policy ƒ lifestyle goals. Face-to-face discussion is the most natural way of learning. And it’s natural to want the best for your family. The IFOA and Richlink Capital are natural partners for UHNW and those serving them. I trust you find this IFOA publication useful and informative. Best wishes on your Family Office journey.


Another major feature of our relationship with China is the University’s cotutelle and joint PhD program. In recent years, we have established strong relationships with leading universities in China to jointly enrol and supervise higher degree research students, supported in many cases by the generosity of the China Scholarship Council.


This teaching activity, and the quality of our research, has seen Macquarie ranked as Australia’s best modern university and number 18 in the world by the QS Top 50 Under 50 rankings.

After graduating with a Master of Economics from Macquarie University in 2007, I obtained a great job at a world-leading Wall Street organisation famous for its award- winning risk management solutions for the hedge fund industry.


It was a fantastic springboard for starting my own companies: Visionary Investment Group, which focuses on real estate development, cultural investment, funds management and wealth management; and funds management business Richlink Capital Pty Ltd.


I am deeply grateful for what I have today and what tomorrow will bring. For that I need to thank Macquarie University with full appreciation. Jason Zheng
