Our
Approach

Rockefeller & Co. provides comprehensive wealth advisory services to help clients grow their assets, diversify their holdings, and maintain a legacy for future generations.

Our team has a deep understanding of the financial challenges facing individuals, families, family offices, foundations, endowments, and non-profit institutions. Our advisory services are guided by our expertise in seeking to provide effective solutions that reflect the particular dynamics of a client’s specific circumstances.

Our
Services

Driven by our commitment to client interests and by our independent, collaborative culture, Rockefeller & Co.’s range of services is designed to be comprehensive, yet customizable. We offer investment advisory, trust company, Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO) services, and family office services in seeking to help clients meet their complex financial needs.

After a thorough review of a client’s circumstances and needs, our advisory team constructs an in-depth, actionable plan to address targeted goals. This service is customizable and may involve multiple disciplines, with a holistic perspective on identifying the most appropriate approach to pursue.

Rockefeller & Co. takes a long-term approach to wealth planning. While some individuals, families, family offices, foundations, endowments, and non-profit institutions tend to focus their financial efforts primarily on investment returns, we formulate approaches that seek to preserve wealth, help clients prepare for future needs, and assess legacy goals for future generations.

Wendy Xu
Investment Research Analyst

To help our clients pursue their investment goals, Rockefeller & Co. offers investment expertise and advice to personalize asset allocation and investment plans.

The core of our service is based on the objective investment advice we seek to provide, supported by an open-architecture wealth management platform.

Our Client Process

First, Rockefeller & Co.’s wealth advisors help to identify a client’s goals. Through a review of the existing portfolio—followed by a consideration of cash flow needs, objectives, and risk tolerances—our team works with the client to develop a tailored approach which may, based on the client’s preferences, include developing an investment policy statement or enhancing a pre-existing policy statement.

Asset Allocation

We also help our clients decide on asset and style allocations. Our allocation recommendations may incorporate a variety of vehicles, including Rockefeller & Co.’s own investment strategies, our network of third party managers, mutual funds, ETFs, alternative strategies, private equity funds, and more as may be appropriate. As an independent investment adviser, we seek to provide strategy recommendations to our clients with their best interests in mind.

Equities

Rockefeller & Co.’s skilled and collaborative equity analysts and portfolio managers make decisions based on a global perspective and long-term objectives.

Fixed Income Securities

Rockefeller & Co.’s taxable fixed income strategy focuses on investment grade bonds. When considering tax-exempt securities, we focus on higher quality municipal bonds backed by solid collateral. Our overall objective for investing in fixed income securities is to generate current income and preserve principal income.

Mutual Funds

We maintain a platform of “long only” third party mutual funds, which include both active and passive strategies. For more information on the mutual fund platform, please click here.

Manager Selection and Outsourced Chief Investment Officer Services

Rockefeller & Co.’s independence as an investment advisory firm is an important component of our open architecture platform. Rockefeller & Co.’s advice is driven by an independent analysis of opportunities in line with our clients’ objectives, viewed within our long-term, global perspective.

Where appropriate, we seek to objectively identify the external resources (e.g., managers, strategies and funds) that we believe most effectively match a client’s needs. Furthermore, we believe that the results of our external search process is enhanced by the insight of our own seasoned asset management professionals.

Certain clients—including endowments, family offices, and both non-profit and for-profit institutions—may have needs that are well-suited for our OCIO services. In the OCIO dynamic, Rockefeller & Co. essentially becomes the de-facto investing function for the client. We can provide OCIO services on either a discretionary or non-discretionary basis, with our focus on objective advice and risk management.
