Our 20+ years of experience inform our approach to best practices and can enhance your efforts to launch your office.

With personal G2 experience, ExCel's principals understand firsthand the importance of family governance and the role of managing family dynamics. We have counseled families for more than two decades, providing insights into organizing the family office’s structure, developing a family mission statement, and conducting effective family retreats.

We specialize in educating the next generation about wealth responsibility and financial literacy. We have developed a proprietary curriculum that is distinctive for its approach to integrating knowledge about planning and investing with insights about behavior and dynamics.

Our active approach to managing assets seeks to allow you to better predict income and protect the built-in gains of the portfolio. With a proprietary process and investment philosophy, we use innovative and proven investment strategies in equity, fixed income and derivatives markets in pursuit of differentiated, risk-adjusted returns. With nearly 40 years of combined experience, we actively manage strategies to deliver what a modern portfolio should be designed for: enhanced cash flow and returns in almost any market condition.

There are viable pre-event planning strategies for family offices using solutions that can minimize ordinary income and capital gains tax. This planning is highly customized and impacted by specifics, such as entity structure and timing.

Whether planning for a one-time liquidity event or preparing for a transition of wealth through succession planning or estate planning, we have a deep knowledge of best practices.

Our planning process can also help you to gain consensus from family members, despite complexity of the issues and your particular life circumstances.

  • Transition planning services
  • Tax planning/pre-event liquidity planning for business owners
  • Business succession planning strategies
  • Estate planning
  • Wealth transfer

Proper estate planning ensures a smooth transfer of wealth to the next generation that reflects the values and mission of the family. These are often very challenging and sensitive matters because they involve money, real estate, or family businesses.

Families come to us to help navigate the complexity of these matters, and to ultimately design an estate plan that is aligned for success. We begin with a unique discovery process that enables us to get to the root of your family’s dynamic, relationship to wealth and various needs. We then help you to create a legacy plan that is detailed, equitable and reflects the uniqueness of your family.

It is important to note that our work does not end once your estate/legacy plan is complete. On the contrary, we have found it all too common for families to put their plans on a shelf and leave them untouched until there is a major life event. We do not let that happen. We prefer to stay connected with your family and advisors to ensure that plans remain current and up to date.

Ultimately, it is our goal to make sure that you and your family are properly prepared for life events and are proactively managing current and future tax burdens.
