Manchester Capital Management LLC (MCM) is, and has been since its inception, a family office dedicated to helping families sustain their wealth, values, and legacy from generation to generation. MCM began as a private family office that combined the resources of several related families who sought superior, cost-effective investment expertise. Over the ensuing years, Manchester added a number of non-family clients, leading to its registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission in 1993 as a Registered Investment Advisor.
Today, MCM primarily serves wealthy families and related foundations, endowments, and trusts. MCM’s core competency is investment management, while also providing a full range of family office services which include, wealth-transfer strategies, philanthropic guidance, tax planning, educational programs, customized reporting, family governance, and family meetings. The firm’s clients are located across the country, with a handful overseas.
MCM is owned by the partners and clients of the firm, and has no outside shareholders or corporate parent. The firm serves exclusively as its clients’ advocate and integrator of financial affairs and strives to become their trusted advisor. MCM is independent and free from the conflicts of interest that arise when a corporate firm needs to serve the interests of its shareholders ahead of the interests of its clients.
The firm works with a fully transparent fee structure based upon the value of the assets under management. MCM does not receive commissions or brokers’ fees based on transactions and does not have any soft-dollar relationships with money managers that might influence MCM’s advice.
MCM has four offices: Manchester, Vermont; New York, New York; Montecito, California; and Charlottesville, Virginia.
