The Campbell GroupThe Campbell Group advises successful company founders, private equity partners, venture capitalists and senior executives on ultra-high-net worth wealth management. We have a particular focus in helping entrepreneurs with the complex issues of managing large concentrated equity positions that often culminate in IPOs and mergers. We have guided many founders through liquidity events and understand the intricate and nuanced issues involved in a significant transition. All clients gain access to our network, which includes some of the most sophisticated investors in the world. We draw insights from thought leaders both internal and external to Merrill Lynch. Our goal is to understand the investment landscape and help clients make good wealth management decisions.
Investment ApproachOur judgment has been honed over a number of investment cycles and reflects experience from advising clients through challenging markets and complicated liquidity transactions. We believe that both experience and adaptability to new dynamics are requirements for preserving client assets and prospering in the current markets. Heightened market volatility, increased connectedness of information, and the possibility of outlying events are all factors in our portfolios. We adapt traditional asset allocation models to address the lifecycle of entrepreneurs and the particular needs of clients with concentrated stock or illiquid business interests. We place a premium on liquidity and flexibility in investment plans.
