Family Office Services
BlumShapiro offers a complete range of Family Office services, from routine accounting needs to sophisticated financial, tax and estate planning. You've worked hard to build a solid foundation for your family's future — and our experts are committed to working with you and your family to minimize risk and identify valuable tax-saving opportunities.
BlumShapiro’s primary focus on all of our family office relationships is that we provide the accounting and tax services related to the family members and all of their associated entities. Our ability to service both family members and all related entities allows us to take a holistic approach to tax planning and other financial services.
Our family office business advisors recognize the importance of accessibility and response time. We work hard to meet the needs of all family members while, at the same time, being conscious of the family dynamics. We serve as a trusted advisor to our clients, and, as such, we often participate in family meetings as a moderator or advisor attendee. Our holistic view of the family and business finances provides useful guidance for the family's decision making. We are committed to providing these services while maintaining the highest degree of privacy and discretion.
Our experts are also aware that each family and business situation is unique, and tailor our services and presentations in such a manner that they become useful to the specific family we are engaged to assist. We believe our customized approach leads to a higher level of success for the family. BlumShapiro is also often called upon to work in conjunction with the other professional advisors, attorneys, investment advisors and insurance providers. We enjoy being part of a team that works together to achieve the best results for the family.
