Your strengthened confidence in your family’s future is at the center of our strategic and unbiased investment advice.
Fifth Avenue Family Office is a Registered Investment Advisor. As such, we create investment policies based upon your family’s unique investment objectives, with estate and tax planning goals in mind. Because we are not tied to brokerage firms or banks and their institutional ideologies, we provide an independent view to best meet your investment objectives.
We manage portfolios to the institutional All-World benchmark, holding all strategies to that strict standard. Our Core Investment Philosophy builds portfolios that are low fee, tax efficient, guided by an Investment Policy Statement, and are closely correlated to the institutional benchmark. For the equity side, our CoreTaxAlpha strategy targets an annualized tax alpha of +1.0% to +2.0% over the benchmark. On a continual basis, we monitor your portfolio to make sure it is performing per your Investment Policy Statement, measuring both After-Fee and After-Tax performance.
Estate & Legacy Planning
Providing for your family, minimizing expenses and maximizing opportunities are just a few of the benefits of a solid estate and legacy plan.
Our family office coordinates with attorneys, accountants, insurance professionals and family members to help you achieve your unique goals. And since your legacy plan may evolve over time, we review your estate plan annually to ensure it reflects your family’s current intentions. In fact, members of our team currently serve on several client family trusts.
By investing wisely within your various retirement accounts, you can increase your retirement savings and avoid unnecessary tax ramifications. Our team works directly with your tax preparer to anticipate any possible issues and manage your investments in a tax-efficient manner.
