Cresset was founded by entrepreneurs Eric Becker and Avy Stein who spent decades as private equity investors, during which they started, nurtured, and backed over 150 businesses and raised more than $8 billion in funding.
As they explored options for managing their own family wealth, they were struck by the limitations of existing wealth management approaches, including sophisticated advice and access to an ecosystem of direct private investments.
As business innovators, Eric and Avy built an employee and client-owned multi-family office to deliver a new paradigm for wealth management. Cresset now has over $12B AUM, and is a Barron’s and Forbes Top Advisory firm¹ with True Fiduciary® Standards that put your interests first. Cresset is leading the way.
Proudly independent. Investing the way it should be.
A Firm Built By Clients, For Clients®
"We built Cresset to provide opportunities — which were once only available to multi-billion-dollar families — to entrepreneurs, CEO Founders, and private equity partners, as well as high-net-worth and multi-generational families. Thinking like a ten billion dollar single-family office, we developed an award-winning shared services platform to deliver the same resources and experiences targeting each stage of your life at a fraction of the cost."
— Eric Becker & Avy Stein, Cresset Co-Founders
