Established more than 30 years ago, the Global Family & Private Investment Office Practice serves the needs of ultra-high-net-worth individuals and their single family offices, private companies and private investment companies. This dedicated boutique practice provides investment, fiduciary, custody, financial reporting and investment advisory solutions.
Our family office clients implement sophisticated investment programs, utilize multiple internal, external, domestic and global money managers, require complex reporting and often do work within the framework of a family office to manage and oversee a variety of financial needs and wealth transfer strategies.
We foster long-term relationships with our clients by offering an unparalleled combination of service, institutional expertise and global capabilities which are aligned with their distinct needs.
The strategic focus on our clients and our core business has not wavered for over 125 years. Our heritage gives us an unparalleled insight into the needs of our clients and to this day we adhere to the same principles upon which we were founded by the Smith Family – Service, Expertise and Integrity.
