Family Office Network Launches Los Angeles Family Office Association as Networking Resource for Wealthy Families

Los Angeles, CA - May 31, 2017 - Family Office Networks announced today the launch of a new division in Los Angeles led by local resident James R. (Jim) Hedges, IV. Family offices, high net worth individuals and the top advisors who serve them are invited to join the Los Angeles Family Office Association, which will host events on a regular basis across Los Angeles. The group will celebrate its local kick off with an exclusive, invitation-only networking event this summer at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

 The Los Angeles Family Office Association (losangelesfoa.org) will serve one of the most intellectually astute family office regions in the country. The group is designed to serve the extremely accomplished single and multi-family office community by creating an environment in which to share intellectual capital, leverage their years of industry expertise, and bring unique industry-generated deal flow and opportunities.

 "Our organization is dedicated to providing information, opportunities and investment resources to affluent families and individuals. We provide multi-generational support to family structures in order to ensure continued success and wealth preservation. We will offer our Los Angeles members exceptional news, information, and other resources to help ensure that they are well-positioned for future success," said Andrew Schneider, Founder and President of Family Office Networks.

Local Managing Director James R. Hedges, IV was one of the early leaders in the hedge fund and alternative investments industry and is the author of Hedges on Hedge Funds. He was the Founder and Chief Investment Officer of LJH Global Investments, LLC, an alternative investment firm which advised on the placement of over $5 billion of assets. Following the sale of LJH, in 2010, he founded Montage Finance, to make asset-backed loans secured by contemporary art and is also Managing Member of Hedges-Projects, a family entity created to oversee principal investments and art activities. Hedges has been an active investor throughout his 25-year career, representing the interests of both substantial investors and entrepreneurs. In 2017, Hedges founded HEDGES COMPANY (www.hedges.company), an Expert Network to marshal resources for its clients' investing, growth and business development needs.

 The Los Angeles Family Office Association is open to any family office operating in the local market. There will be numerous events, seminars, and special functions that take place throughout the year engineered to deliver the most pertinent information to assist family offices in reaching their goals.
