Family Office Services
This arrangement includes an annual fee that is calculated by applying a percentage to your net worth and a percentage to your income and adding the two.
The percentage for net worth starts at .75 and lowers to .15 as the amount rises and income starts at 1.5 and lowers to .5.
Example: A family with an income of $250,000 and a net worth of $1,000,000 would have its annual fee calculated as:
1.5% of $250,000 ($3,750) + .75% of $1,000,000 ($7,500) = $11,250.

This arrangement is based on an hourly rate of $500/hour and is calculated in 30 minute increments.
