Boston Family Advisors delivers a highly customized family oﬃce experience by building each family office independently and with complete autonomy.
Our ability to leverage the expenses incurred by a typical family office allows our clients to enjoy a single-family office experience at a significantly reduced cost.
Boston Family Advisors is committed to the highest fiduciary standard. We do not accept any form of payment from external advisors, nor do we provide internal financial incentives for up-selling or cross-selling.
We measure wealth based on total net worth, not simply investable assets. We are asset location agnostic, and our platform is entirely open architecture. As such, our families are invested in a broad spectrum of investment categories.
Our clients have proven track records in venture capital, private equity, and real estate. In addition, we attract entrepreneurs who are creating value and identifying market demands in a range of industries.
A single-family office structure caters to the unique needs of each client. Regardless of the degree of complexity or urgency, we ensure complete oversight, customization, and results for each family.
Our single-family office structure allows our clients to focus on the activities they value most.
As your outsourced CFO, COO, CIO and CSO, we manage all aspects of your financial life.
