About Us


After Nearly a Century, We Remain Innovators

A compelling record of wealth preservation and growth

Our entrepreneurial mindset drives innovation through collaboration: with you, your family and your trusted advisors. Pitcairn is one of the most respected thought leaders across the industry and around the world. As your partner, we will help you protect, grow, and keep more of your wealth, enabling you to achieve better outcomes year-to-year, decade-to-decade, generation-to-generation.

Defining what it means to serve families

Understanding families—truly listening to and hearing you—is the foundation of everything we do. Since our founding in 1923, we have consistently recognized one overarching truth: No two families are the same. This is why chemistry and achieving a true partnership with those we serve is so important to us and our clients, and why we only engage with a few, select new families each year. Our consistent delivery of an exceptional client experience—“The Pitcairn Experience”—is dependent on this.

An exceptional client experience

Bringing exceptional people, technology, and process together, our integrated planning and implementation has helped families become stronger, grow their investments, and build their legacies. Each member of your multi-disciplinary, multi-generational Pitcairn team, as well as our firm’s leadership will be proactive with our interaction and communication with you. You will also benefit from access to our global network of clients, intermediaries, and talented professionals—an exclusive set of trusted contacts and valuable resources.

We welcome the opportunity to gain insight into the challenges you face and the aspirations you and your family are pursuing.

This month Pitcairn was pleased to launch the next evolution of our reporting and custody platform called PRISM™. PRISM (Pitcairn Reporting and Information Security Management) represents the new standard in integrated family office support and its design provides increased flexibility, mobility, and security. 

Behind the scenes, Darryl Chisom, Family Office Solutions Specialist, has been working diligently supporting Pitcairn’s technology and operations teams to integrate PRISM across all aspects of clients’ portfolio reporting, custody, and operational support. We recently sat down with Darryl to chat about his involvement on the PRISM project and more.

Tell us a little bit about your journey at Pitcairn and how it has evolved.
Since joining Pitcairn in June 2017, I’ve seen my role go from more task-based work to process management to the present with what has become more project-oriented work similar to my involvement with PRISM. In support of the project-oriented work, I’ve recently completed coursework and attained a project management certification. My overall experience at Pitcairn thus far has been extremely rewarding. I’d say as Pitcairn has evolved, so too has my role.

What type of projects do you enjoy working on the most?
I really enjoy being able to utilize technology to program business solutions that increase employee effectiveness and improve processes. I find joy working on projects where I can write code, problem solve and increase efficiencies.

2021 is a big year for Pitcairn with the launch of PRISM. Can you share with us your involvement with PRISM?
To me, PRISM means consolidation and refinement. My initial involvement has included the mass creation of our client agreements. Also, I will be involved in moving our Client and Adviser Portals from our current system to the future system. The team is eager to share the updated interface, enhanced viewing features, and most importantly, the additional layer of data security.

What are you looking forward to in 2021?
I’m looking forward to having a “normal” active summer for the first time since 2019. I have two new goals for the new year. I want to improve my flexibility. I believe tension release is good body maintenance. I also want to work on being more present in the moment. I tend to get caught up in what’s next instead of appreciating what’s now.
