Family Office Advisory


Family Office Advisory is an area of special focus for us.

MAS assists families in managing all aspects of their investment programs.  Families typically call upon MAS to assist them with matters of special concern to them.  Questions regarding fees, commitment terms, and quality of investment management usually trigger families’ calls to us. 

MAS seeks to align families’ portfolios with objectives.  Reviewing portfolios often leads to material changes in investment managers and service providers.
