We strive to give expert advice and support based on our financial expertise and strong client focus.

CORE VALUES

We are focusing on servicing the sophisticated needs of wealthy families. Benefit from our insights and best practices so you can fully understand the changing trends that may impact you.

What is a Family Office?

A Family Office is an organization a wealthy family sets up by hiring a wide range of professionals across multiple disciplines – taxes, estate planning, accounting, bookkeeping, investing, etc. – to work for them and help them manage and execute their wealth management activities.

What is the difference between a Family Office, my private banker and my asset manager?

The difference is independence. Family offices ideally are not affiliated with any bank, financial institution or asset manager. The advice they provide is strictly objective and without the conflict of a sales mandate or a financial interest in selling particular financial products or services.  A wealth manager comes in many legal forms  – private bank, trust company, brokerage firm, family office, multi-family office, financial planner, etc.

Do I have to change banks?

There is no need for you to change banks. As your advocate, we work with each of your service providers to be sure they are working toward your best interests. Through consolidated reporting, we review transactions, confirm pricing, review commissions, identify errors and see that what you agreed to pay is what you are being charged.

OUR SERVICES

DEFINE SHORT TERM AND LONG TERM INVESTMENT STRATEGY

We focus on defining short and long term investment strategies taking into account the needs of the client and the family’s capital structure. We anticipate and define legal and tax planning elements to be taken into consideration.

A sophisticated asset allocation in Wealth Management is essential to ensure portfolio returns. It is far more important how much exposure you have to one specific asset class overall than each individual security you invest in.

Many investors ignore it and spend much too much time picking individual stocks. We believe that time and efforts shall be spent where it really matters – on the asset allocation level.

 

Our investment process is based on designing a dynamic asset allocation strategy for each of our clients. This portfolio strategy enable us to protect the capital from risks, capture upside and ensure the returns will be stable across even the most unstable environments.

PROVIDE FULL AND CLEAR PICTURE OF CONSOLIDATED INVESTMENTS

It is crucial for us to present a full and clear picture of your aggregated portfolio, providing all relevant reports and explanations on a regular basis.

STRUCTURING THE NECESSARY GOVERNANCE

We are bound to put our client’s interests first, ahead of our own. Working closely with professional legal experts, we help preparing Testaments, pre-nuptial agreements or other relevant legal documents.

ADVISE AND SUPERVISE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE INVESTMENT STRATEGY

We represent the client and maintain on an ongoing basis contact with banks, portfolio managers and trustees to monitor the implementation process and obtain on-going updates. We will challenge the asset allocation or investment strategy when necessary.

REPRESENT CLIENTS AND MANAGE NEGOTIATIONS WITH FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

We have dedicated agreements in place with several banks. It enable us to manage clients’ portfolios in full transparency and as effectively as possible, while saving on costs for buying and selling securities and other services. Therefore, cash and financial assets will remain in a bank account under the client’s name. 

 

Clients provide us a limited power of attorney solely for the purpose of buying and selling securities and the company we are not authorized to take any other action such as withdrawals. This limited power of attorney and our contractual engagement can obviously be revoked at any time. 

We have only one goal:  our clients’ satisfaction. We don’t enter into fee retrocession agreements, whether with banks or other intermediaries

ALIYA

Wealth Management for New Israeli Residents or Returning Residents

If you have immigrated to Israel or are considering making Aliya, there are various Israeli tax benefits for Olim that should be taken into consideration when managing your wealth.

However, that Aliya 10-year tax window will close before you realize it, so it is crucial to undertake medium-term and long-term financial planning to ensure that your investments are suitably structured. Israeli citizens are taxed on their worldwide income so your Wealth Management should take into account all assets located outside Israel, and financial connections with family members in other jurisdictions, such as trusts and inheritances.

Also, one should be aware that capital gains after the 10-year tax break of Aliya shall be imposed so that it is important not to accumulate considerable capital gains at the end of this period.

As a Family Office providing services to many Olim, we can help you with international tax planning, estate planning, restructuring your wealth before and after you made Aliya.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
