Alvarium Investments has appointed Peter Golovsky to head up its family office services in the Asia Pacific.

Golovsky joins Alvarium from investor services provider IQ-EQ, where he was head of private wealth for Asia, based in Hong Kong.

He brings over 25 years of experience in the financial services industry, ten of which he spent in Hong Kong in family office and investment advisory businesses.

The family office specialist has previously held senior roles with Cone Marshall, Amicorp Group,  Macquarie, and Westpac.

Golovsky has been tasked with helping to drive the growth of Alvarium's platform across Asia with a particular focus on developing the platform in both Singapore and Australia, together with providing more holistic services to Asian entrepreneurs, families, and family offices.

His appointment comes as the group is set to take advantage of major opportunities in the region, both for first-generation and multi-generational wealth creators.

Alvarium notes the dramatic rise in intergenerational wealth transfer, estimated at more than $15 trillion globally over the next 20 years.

"One of our priorities in Asia-Pacific is coordinating and advising on the establishment of family office structures and leveraging the Alvarium platform for its network of global intermediary advisors and custodians, as well as accessing its proprietary real asset deal flow," the firm said.

The firm has $21 billion in assets under advice for institutional clients and multi-generational entrepreneurs and families.
