Meet Our Team

Meet our Clients

We serve individuals who have sold businesses, inherited assets and saved money throughout successful careers. We also serve non-profits with endowments to invest.

We have clients in 17 states across the nation, with concentrations in North Carolina, Virginia and New York.

Typically our clients have the potential for investment assets to exceed $1 million over time, though smaller initial accounts are considered; larger relationships exceed $40 million.

We use separate accounts customized to each client’s needs, using in-house research as we seek to build high quality, endowment-like, diversified portfolios.

We listen carefully as we seek to understand the life circumstances for which each client must plan, and undertake comprehensive, scrupulously monitored management of wealth.
