Forming a Family Office

Is a Family Office Right for You?

  1. Too Many “Go-To” Advisors: You receive countless emails, phone calls and communications from your trusted legal, financial and investment advisors. You’re starting to become overwhelmed.
  2. Financial Chaos: You have numerous bills, file folders, stacks of paper, jammed office drawers and multiple household employees. It’s becoming a real struggle to keep track of everything. You need help with your tax payments and filings, insurance renewals and coverage assessments, capital calls and commitments and collectibles management.
  3. Professional vs. Personal: You trust your employees and allow them to help manage portions of your personal life, giving them access to your finances and personal net worth, but you haven’t done anything to protect yourself against unauthorized use of this access.
  4. Trustworthy Decisions: You have a number of trusts created to protect your wealth, but you’re unsure if your trustees are aware of the responsibilities and requirements needed to fulfill their fiduciary duties.
  5. Family Education: As your family matures, you want your spouse and the next generation to become actively involved in learning how you manage your wealth, but you’re not sure where to begin.

We provide our clients with integrated family office services tailored to meet their needs and the needs of their families. Contact us to learn more about how we can help you simplify your life and continue to build your legacy.
