About Kirby Rosplock
My career is focused on researching and advising family offices. I am a global advisor to financial institutions, families, family office executives and multi-family office and wealth advisors on process consultation, job and task analysis, strategic management advisory, research and family wealth education and governance. Determining who should consider forming or joining a family office, and how to craft and set up a structure, purpose, and vision for the office that fully serves a family’s particular needs and investment goals are my areas of expertise.
My book, The Complete Direct Investing Handbook, was published by Wiley/Bloomberg on May 15, 2017. Whether you’re an investor, inheritor, wealth creator, a member of a family considering forming or joining a family office, or a professional contemplating a career in this growing segment of the wealth management industry, I believe both of my books will be of interest to you.
I am a proud board member of Merton Venture Philanthropy, a former board member of Family Enterprise USA and Babcock Lumber Co., a Fellow of the Family Firm Institute (FFI), a faculty of the FFI GEN program and Co-trustee of the Harbeck Family Foundation. I am a frequent speaker, author and research collaborator on the family office.

Books By Kirby Rosplock
The Complete Direct Investing Handbook provides comprehensive guidelines, principles and practical perspectives on this increasingly attractive private equity investment strategy. Interviews with leading family office investors, qualified private equity buyers, and top direct investing advisors provide essential insights, and attention to the nuanced processes of direct investing. The books is a hands-on resource for family offices and those investors interested in generating returns through private company ownership to be more effective in creating returns in a complex market. Direct investing best practices are explored in-depth, with guidance on strategy and the evaluation and assessment of various investment opportunities. The process begins with a codified and specific investment goal, and a robust strategy tailored to the investor's individual needs. Useful insight on 'narrowing the field' helps investors select the appropriate opportunities to meet their investment goals, and practical tools help streamline the process of capital deployment and in turn providing more opportunities to achieve desired returns.
Despite the growing interest in direct investing, there is little public information available to investors and there is a lack of transparency into practical standards. This book bridges the gap between strategy and execution, with comprehensive guidance and real-world insights.
- Define and craft a focused investment thesis and appropriate timeline specific to your needs
- Identify the right type, size, duration, and risk profile aligned to your investment objectives
- Gain perspective on real-world direct investing and a deeper understanding of the risks and rewards
- Better understand best practices and institutional investment rigor to develop bespoke processes and policies that create better outcomes for independent investors
Historically, extraordinary wealth has been created through equity in privately-held enterprise. Today, family offices and direct investors are looking more and more toward large capital deployment in early-stage and growth-oriented private equity investments, but are constrained by a lack of informed, established practices. The Complete Direct Investing Handbook provides the much-needed guidance and tools that can improve direct investment outcomes.
