Global Family & Private Investment Offices
Enterprise-wide support for your family office.
Serving the needs of family offices, family foundations, ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families, private trust companies and private investment companies around the world for more than 40 years.
Harness Your Data
We offer proprietary reporting and data visualization tools so you can spend less time collecting/protecting data, and more time using it.
We empower you with decision-ready tools and on demand services so you can make more thoughtful business and portfolio decisions, resulting in reduced friction, risk and cost in day-to-day operations.
Investment Advisory Services
A challenging market environment and the unique asset allocation needs of long-duration investors like family offices may make the coming years unusually critical to meeting investment objectives.
We develop long-term return forecasts across asset classes to guide family office investors as they tackle strategic and tactical portfolio construction decisions.
Finding the Right Trustee
The requirements of administering trusts continue to grow in complexity as trust beneficiaries age, individual trustees contemplate retirement, and new assets get placed in trusts.
We supplement the advisor team by offering a range of flexible approaches to fiduciary services to cater to the fiduciary needs of family offices, ranging from fully discretionary or directed trustee through to co-trustee arrangements or supporting private trust companies.
Network with Your Peers
Family office leaders have limited opportunities to connect, learn, and engage with true family office peers.
With a global client base of more than 500 families, we harness the power of peer perspective with unique networking programs that enable our clients to share best practices, learn from cutting-edge experts, and network with peers.
