What do you get with Tiedemann as your partner?

Strategic Consulting, Education & Goal Setting

We start with a review of your mission, vision and all financial details. Next, we customize educational sessions for the team on goal setting and mission alignment, impact investing, investment management, and fiduciary roles as needed. Then, together, we create a long-term strategic plan for financial and non-financial outcomes, accounting for changes in perpetuity goals, leadership, mission and governance.

Resource for Your Board of Directors

Each relationship is tailored to your foundation’s culture and mission. We facilitate investment committee meetings and the development of materials to be used, as well as coordinate with program staff, accountants, attorneys and other consultants and advisors. Interactive trainings are often provided and continual shared learning on topics ranging from fiduciary roles, effective investment management, goal setting and mission alignment.
