Integrated service from your regional team and national specialists

Addressing both the qualitative and quantitative dimensions of multigenerational wealth, Ascent takes a holistic approach to client service. Each regional office is staffed by a team of professionals that include managing directors of wealth strategy (trust and estate advisors), investment consulting, private banking and financial administration.

These subject matter experts work closely with Ascent's regional managing director, client advisory — the relationship manager who is the primary point of contact for the family and individual family members — and the managing director, client experience — the key contact for day-to-day client requests. Team members actively participate in client meetings, providing an uncommon depth and breadth of wealth management expertise.

Ascent Private Capital Management's unique wealth sustainability services are delivered by our national team. Headquartered in our Denver office, they work closely with the regional office teams and travel exclusively to meet with Ascent families and their advisors.

The national team is led by a senior managing director for wealth sustainability and includes senior wealth planners and strategic wealth coaches, all focused on helping families understand the broader impact of their wealth. They address issues of family governance and legacy, wealth planning and CFO services.
