Recognizing the vast differences among private clients, we tailor our approach to the specific needs of the wealth owner or family office. Although most seek us to provide advice across a broad range of asset classes, we can also work on a specialized basis to focus on areas where we offer specific expertise, such as alternative assets or governance matters.
Wealth owners and family offices have considerable responsibilities and often lack the full complement of resources to oversee their overall investment program. In a wealth advisory relationship, we provide investment oversight while collaborating with our clients’ other advisors regarding taxes, estate planning, and legal matters to ensure a well-coordinated effort leading to the desired objectives.
Sometimes private clients find gaps in their investment program or family office organization, and they seek our experience and thought leadership in areas such as alternative assets or governance. For these clients, our consulting relationship focuses more on the niche in which they are seeking advice.
Regardless of the scope of our engagement, our private clients are entitled to receive our deep, proprietary global research on capital markets, managers, and comparative data, which serves as the solid underpinning for our independent advice.
