We work directly with over 100 Single Family Offices and help them navigate the entire spectrum of investments in the alternative asset space.
This includes advice on private equity, real estate, venture capital, hedge funds, and other investments that are not in the public market. We do our diligence on every deal and invest personally in most of the transactions. Once a deal has been properly vetted, we share our deal flow with the Family Offices in our network.
