Should I Invest In REITs? The Business Cycle Are Alternative Investments Right for You? Sit, Stay, Rollover: A Guide to IRA Rollovers

Welcome to Thurman Private Wealth

Thurman Private Wealth was founded more than a quarter of a century ago with the specific goal of providing independent, objective advice in serving the unique requirements and protection of high net-worth individuals and families. 

In 2005, we started working closely with top-tier private equity firms in Silicon Valley. Through this work, we interacted with the top hedge fund, private-equity, and venture capitalists where we became familiar with the long-term endowment investing approach used at Harvard and Yale universities. The endowment model incorporates all major asset classes, including alternatives, selects top managers for each, and takes a long-term view on their returns.    

Most of today's brokers, banks, investment advisors and "wealth managers" have focused on appealing to the broad array of clients generally referred to as the "mass affluent". We are different. At Thurman Private Wealth, we bring the highly specialized knowledge, financial expertise, and service necessary to manage the complex financial affairs of high net-worth individuals and families. 

Our top priority is creating a culture of exceptionalism in being objective and forward looking in our goal to help families avoid risks and capture opportunities through due diligence, because we believe it is very important to know the persons who are managing the money. Our highly experienced professionals have access to distinctive investment opportunities across traditional and alternative asset classes.

We use our experience and talents in striving to be your preferred financial resource. That is why we will always give you straight answers to difficult questions, and always pursue your best interests when it comes to your goals.

If you are looking for a firm that puts you and your family’s future first, maintains discretion, independence and accountability, then we may be the firm for you.
