“The firms who triumphed in these inaugural awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations,” said Stephen Harris, CEO of ClearView Financial Media and publisher of Family Wealth Report. “These awards recognize the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process — such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management.”
“Having our Family Office Group and our tax and accounting team recognized for excellence and innovation by such a well-respected publication like Family Wealth Report and an esteemed panel of experts is a great honor,” said Rick Flynn, principal-in-charge of the Rothstein Kass Family Office Group. “The addition of the Boston office to our Family Office Group has enabled us to broaden our service offering and geographic reach, and we’re proud that the wealth management community has recognized the team’s hard work and dedication. The strength of the Rothstein Kass brand has allowed us to continue expanding our reach and bring our integrated planning approach to more high-net-worth individuals and families in more locations around the world.”
The Rothstein Kass Family Office Group opened its Boston office in the fourth quarter of 2012 with 16 professionals serving a wide variety of clients in hedge fund, private equity, venture capital and family office businesses to name only a few.
