Specialty asset management

When private business, real estate and mineral assets are part of an estate or trust, you need an administrative partner who understands more than just the market value. Our specialty asset management teams understand the day-to-day operational challenges. The long-term investment environment. And the ins and outs of complex agreements and transactions. Whether it’s a multi-tiered partnership, a diverse portfolio of commercial properties, or a portfolio of oil fields.

Managing real property and other non-financial assets for the benefit of a trust or as part of an estate takes particular skills and experience. Our specialty asset teams combine a deep knowledge of the assets they oversee with extensive experience managing them within trust and estate structures.

Servicing specialty assets held in your trust or estate

The 40+ professionals1 on our specialty asset teams help manage the day-to-day operations and preserve the long-term value of the non-financial assets in your trust or estate across three broad categories.
