Pitcairn, a leading family office that recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Temperance Partners, a private investment firm backed by single family capital with a long-term orientation. This partnership and investment positions Pitcairn for continued organic and inorganic growth, as well as future investments in technology, talent, and unique family office client experiences.

Temperance Partners has chosen to invest in Pitcairn because of its uniquely valuable culture and success in creating lasting legacies for client families. With this investment, Temperance Partners becomes a minority shareholder and looks forward to working with Pitcairn in the decades ahead, while the Joseph D. Sorbara family becomes a client and aligns itself with an industry-leading family office.

Commenting on the partnership, Pitcairn President & CEO Andrew Busser said: “We have known Temperance Partners for years and we are thrilled to welcome them as partners in our family office. Their confidence in Pitcairn reflects our shared commitment to delivering an exceptional client experience and empowering our multigenerational clients to build meaningful legacies. Our partnership with Temperance marks a pivotal moment in Pitcairn’s 100-year history, positioning us for even greater success and ensuring that we continue to set the standard for what a family office can be.”

Pitcairn, with its rich legacy as a Shared Single-Family Office™ and approximately $7 billion in assets under advisement, as well as Temperance Partners and the Joseph D. Sorbara family office, all share a commitment to the principles of integrity, transparency, and client-centric service. This investment reinforces our consummate dedication to helping families maintain their Wealth Momentum® across generations.

Temperance Partners brings a long-term investment approach, prudent financial stewardship, invaluable experience in the wealth sector, and a strategic vision that aligns seamlessly with Pitcairn’s objectives. As part of this new partnership, Kevin Tice, Paul Sorbara (observer), and Jason Seltzer of Temperance Partners have joined Pitcairn Financial Group’s Board of Directors.
