Our Customers

Acting as your outsourced COO / CTO, we are your advocate when working with your other service providers. Similar to the wealth management space, we uphold a “fiduciary” duty to our clients when defining strategy or managing vendors.

We take the time to sit with clients and understand their unique needs and challenges before formulating a plan. We are “open architecture” so we work with a variety of IT / SW / HW companies to best meet our clients’ needs, without any lock-in.

We have long served ultra-high net worth families, their family offices, and wealth management firms and understand their unique needs around privacy, confidentiality, compliance, and white glove service. We specialize in providing highly personalized service to these families, executives, and RIA’s.

As angel investors, our other major focus area is start-ups. We have worked with various startups and enjoy helping them launch and become successful.

"Amazing Service and Quality Work!"
