Pitcairn | Helping families achieve their most important ambitions and preserve the family heritage they treasure.

The Accumulation of Wealth Creates Both Rare Opportunities and Imposing Challenges

Family members contend with a host of responsibilities ranging from:

  • Managing their investments, to monitoring their estate and tax plans;
  • Coordinating tax returns and philanthropic giving
  • Keeping up with constant flow of paperwork.

Helping families address these unique needs is the raison d’être of Pitcairn. Our long experience as a family office enables us to not only help families manage the day-to-day, but also help them see around corners, anticipating and preparing for well thought-out transitions that are the hallmark of successful families.
