Meristem Family Wealth



Understanding Your Unique Needs

Our client families are affluent, yes, but there are almost as many definitions for affluence as there are varied needs of the families we serve. Whether you are in the process of building your family’s wealth, you want to protect it as it grows, or if you’re preparing your succession plan to leave a legacy, Meristem has a unique suite of services to meet your family's needs. Your family’s needs are at the heart of how and why we do business.

Many families come to us for the following reasons:

  • To reduce financial complexity allowing for focus on your family and your goals.
  • To manage a liquidity event that signals your need for deeper advice and service.
  • To safeguard your family’s wealth for future generations.
  • To create a common family vision of your legacy.

Regardless of your needs, when you become a client of Meristem, you gain a Family Financial Officer on speed dial - one that truly knows your family.
