In this case, the direct rivals of investment companies are banks, so in order to get a major client, you need to offer him conditions more attractive than others. According to a study by Echelon Partners, 8 out of 10 deals in the US market regarding wealth management in the last quarter were private equity deals by an investment firm. A number of them were done through an investment partner.Sequoia Financial Group was founded more than 30 years ago and during this time has become an expert in providing financial services.

Sequoia specialists develop an individual financial plan together with the client, where the stages of achieving the goals are clearly outlined. Each point is created based on individual features, specifics of the field, and other important parameters. The company uses an integrated structure, due to which it is possible to achieve maximum efficiency in working with various assets. Sequoia pays special attention to automated systems that allow monitoring of any fluctuations and forecasting further processes. Such an approach reduces the risk of capital loss and risky investing.
A unique client portfolio is developed for each case, and a strategy is selected on this basis. Modern technological tools make it possible to adjust the approach in a timely manner and allocate assets in such a way as to protect and multiply them.
Sequoia also works with ultra-high-income families. Cooperation with them begins with a consultation. It is important for the professional to know the family’s background, history, and tax burden – this information will help create a dynamic financial plan.
