Personne de Confiance
The concept of a personne de confiance, or trusted advisor, committed to serving the needs and interests of a group of families can be traced back through the centuries. This trusted advisor would act as the family's financial office, collaborating with a key family member to provide integrated, tailored solutions for the family's capital, while promoting and preserving the identity and values of the family as a whole.

It is well documented in many types of literature how families of means have benefited from the use of various advisors. For instance, the book of Proverbs in the Bible speaks to this in multiple passages. Here are two:

"Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety" - Proverbs 11:14

"Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed" - Proverbs 15:22

It is completely intuitive. CPAs, attorneys, and advisors from various segments of finance all collaborating to bring forth better ideas for the family's consideration. However it is imperative that one of those professionals take on the lead role.

Foundational Wealth Advisory (FWA) was established to fill this essential, yet under-recognized, role by providing discerning families with sophisticated, understandable advice across and between generations. The Shared Family Investment Office (SFIO) model we've developed addresses these fundamental needs that any family of means would have.

FWA understands the ongoing challenges today's family faces in dealing with an array of attorneys, accountants, insurers, et al across a plethora of legal and/or corporate structures. Managing, coordinating, and integrating these complex relationships for the benefit of the family is not easy and often times is overwhelming. FWA can help.

We have more than 25 years of experience collaborating with the family's other key advisors to ensure that all the various advisory elements are consistently presented and delivered in a clear, concise manner and are in the best interest of the family.

Through an advisory relationship, we serve in four distinct capacities to our client families: (1) financial planner - providing the framework of the outcome they currently desire; (2) investment advisor - identifying and recommending appropriate investment strategies to meet the goals they've set forth; (3) concierge - adding convenience to their lives by helping them organize their bill payment service options, evaluating their credit cards and recommending appropriate rewards/frequent flyer programs for their lifestyle, and helping them organize and maintain their legal and personal documents for their access anywhere globally; (4) confidant.
