Cresset was created by entrepreneurs Eric Becker and Avy Stein who spent decades as private equity investors. During their careers they started and backed over 150 businesses, and launched eight funds totaling $8B.

As they explored options for managing their own families’ wealth, they were struck by the limitations of existing wealth management approaches, including the lack of sophisticated advice and access to an ecosystem of direct private investments. 

They built what they couldn’t find – a multi-family office dedicated to PE partners and founders. Cresset Asset Management now has over $13.3B AUM, and is a Barron’s and Forbes Top Advisory firm with True Fiduciary® Standards that put your interests first.1
