Changing the financial landscape for generations to come

“In 2011, when I decided to leave Wall Street and set up my own family office, I was determined to offer tech coaching services to those in our community who were making the most money but had the least financial literacy resources. I started helping athletes and entertainers (though not solely focused on them) source, diligence, and invest in tech companies.

My philosophy is, ‘If you won’t do it for free, don’t do it for a fee.’ I had the honor of working with Nas, Elton Brand, and a dozen other influencers where we invested in some of the most exciting tech companies in the world. I sponsored tours of Silicon Valley, did monthly workshops, and provided one-on-one coaching for dozens of guys. Nas has had such a huge impact on culture in America and we were able to use that influence to invest in companies that we otherwise wouldn’t have been allowed to. Coming from Wall Street, I already knew that only the top 20 investors in the country got access to the best deals in the country, working with Nas and other influencers I realized that the only other group to get this access were our athletes and entertainers. We made history with Queensbridge Venture Partners and I am very thankful to have been a part of it.”

Global finance is being transformed as billionaires get richer and cut out the middlemen by creating their own “family offices”, personal investment firms that roam global markets looking for opportunities. Largely unnoticed, family offices have become a force in investing, with up to $4trn of assets—more than hedge funds and equivalent to 6% of the value of the world’s stockmarkets.
