Tiedemann Advisors was founded to address the ways that services provided by traditional investment management firms and trust companies typically fell short.

The three founders — the late Carl Tiedemann, his son Michael Tiedemann, and Craig Smith — were committed to making performance more valuable, portfolios more flexible, advice more objective, and service more personal for high-net-worth individuals, families and foundations.

This commitment has only gained strength over time.

The independent ownership model we established in the beginning has given us a strong and sustainable foundation. Mike and Craig continue on as CEO and president, respectively. And a culture of collaboration, innovation and personal attention permeates our entire team.
