Meet the Tiedemann team
Our commitment to our clients is solidified in our structure as a partnership. From the start, the firm was set up to hand down equity to future generations of Tiedemann employees. Being independent and responsible to ourselves alone allows us to fully invest in our clients.
Jerry has direct responsibility for managing client relationships. He works closely with clients to identify their financial objectives; constructs and manages their investment portfolios; and leverages other Tiedemann resources to formulate a comprehensive wealth, estate, and philanthropic plan.
Jerry joined Tiedemann when the firm merged with Presidio Capital Advisors, where he was responsible for developing, implementing and maintaining customized investment portfolios for families, individuals and institutions. He also served on the Marketing, Investments and Leadership Committees. Prior to joining Presidio in 2005, Jerry was an associate with Goldman Sachs in the Investment Management Division in New York and Dallas. Jerry served as a naval officer and carrier-based fighter pilot for thirteen years before starting his financial career.
