Our Silicon Valley roots are deep. Venture capitalist Laurance S. Rockefeller (1910–2004) formed Rockefeller Brothers, Inc., one of the first formal venture-capital firms, in 1946. In 1969, this storied firm became known as Venrock. Our firm was originally built to guide the Rockefeller Family across every aspect of their personal, business and philanthropic life. In 1980, the Rockefeller Family Office was restructured to provide services to other families, like yours. Over time, the Family Office has developed substantial resources that we believe are unparalleled. We discuss only a few of these concepts below.

We advise wealthy families, senior executives, private equity general partners, company founders, foundations, and more. We can work with you to organize, deploy, and preserve your financial resources in a manner that aligns with your goals and objectives:
• We will identify risk/return profiles for you and your entities (as applicable). We will report results, evaluate the current environment, and make recommendations designed to optimize the potential returns for the risks taken.
• We will advise you and your family on the tax-efficient transition of your assets. This often involves working with your other advisors to create and manage tax-savvy financial structures.
• We will work directly with your children (as applicable) to introduce them to, and educate them about, financial matters. This is often a good platform for perpetuating important family values.
• We understand and can manage: concentrated stock positions, partners’ carried interests, income tax planning, executive compensation, employee benefits, pre and post-acquisition planning, as well as estate planning. In short, we can address, or bring in resources to address, almost any financial matter.
• We can free up your time so that you can pursue things that really matter to you.

“We are a global family office that has served the Rockefeller family since 1882, and the story of the first family in family wealth is our blueprint.”

Timothy D. O’Hara, President, Family Office & Co-Head of Rockefeller Global Family Office

“When people ask me why I think the family has succeeded, I say that the family has chosen high-level advisors whom they totally trust, who are not just yes-men and -women but people who give their honest opinions.”

asset management

In much the same way as we have been fortunate to accompany our clients in their lifecycle journey, businesses, like people, go through their own lifecycle and, no different than any of us, are valuable in each of those various phases but for different reasons.

One common link we have all been bound by is the idea that the identification and ownership of great growth businesses is the best way to achieve investment success over long periods of time. Part of this success comes from knowing where in the business lifecycle a great company resides and understanding the risk/reward trade-offs based on these characteristics.

Our deep understanding of these characteristics inspires us to establish 3 discretionary equity investment strategies which correlate with the 3 main phases in the lifecycle of a business. We believe these equity strategies combined with our customized fixed income strategies are the ideal toolbox to provide quality asset allocation to any and all investors.
