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.

We strive to make the best possible forecasts and there’s no question it feels good when we are right. It’s even truer that being right about good news feels better than being right about bad news. We’ve had both experiences since our last quarterly letter.
