Abbot Downing

For far too long, the focus of wealth management firms has been on the wealth that was removed from your business and into the family’s investment portfolio.

That’s not what we believe.  We believe that each member of the family and the family business are your most valuable assets.  We want to help.

For far too long, the focus has been ROI – Return on Investment.

That’s not what we believe.  We believe in ROE – Return on Everything…your business, your family, your management team, your estate, your legacy and of course, your investments.  We want to help.

We are Family Wealth and Legacy and we are changing the value proposition for mid-market family businesses.
