Manchester Capital Management, LLC began as a private family office
that combined the resources of several related families who sought
superior, cost-effective investment expertise not available from
conventional brokerage firms, banks, or investment houses.
Over the ensuing years, we were asked to help an increasing number
of non-family clients leading to our registration with the Securities
and Exchange Commission in 1993 as a Registered Investment Advisor.
Today, we have a diverse client base that includes wealthy individuals,
families, foundations, endowments, trusts, and corporate retirement
plans. Our clients are located across the U.S. and throughout the
world. We have four offices: Manchester, Vermont; New York, New York; Montecito, California and Charlottesville, VA.
MCM is owned by the partners and clients of the firm, and have
no outside shareholders or corporate parent. Thus, we strive to be free from
the conflicts of interest that arise when a corporate firm needs
to serve the interests of its shareholders ahead of the interests
of its clients.
We charge a fee for our services based upon the value of the assets we manage.
We receive no commissions or brokers' fees based on transactions.
MCM does not have any soft-dollar relationships
with money managers that might influence our advice. As a result, we believe
our interests are aligned with those of our clients. We
adhere to our role as stewards of wealth, rather than salesmen.
