Chris brings nearly 30 years of experience in helping high-net-worth individuals, families, and business owners achieve their personal and financial goals. As CEO and Chairman of TFO Family Office Partners, Chris collaborates with TFO’s leadership team to develop the firm’s vision and to establish its organizational and strategic direction. Chris is deeply passionate about helping families connect their wealth and purpose (his favorite question for families is “What is your wealth for?”). Chris likes to measure his day, and the day of each of his colleagues, by asking a simple question: “Did you help a family today?”. Chris’s purpose-driven approach to serving families (colleagues and clients) permeates the entire organization.
I like helping families. If I can go to sleep at night knowing that I helped a family be stronger, closer or wiser, then I had a good day.
I started TFO Family Office Partners because I wanted to bring to the market a firm which advocates for the client and surrounds them with the expertise they need. One that is solely in the client’s corner and connects them with honest, intelligent advice from advisers with deep expertise in multiple areas: Investments, tax, estate planning, family education, family governance, and philanthropic planning.
My dad, undoubtedly. I spoke with him every day of my life until he died in 2007 and I remain convinced that I won the “dad lottery.” He was one of my best friends and the kindest person I’ve ever met. He gave me unconditional love and taught me that there is no wrong way to do the right thing. I only hope I can be half the dad to my children that he was to me.
