Destiny Family Office Named Prestigious Family Wealth Report Award Finalist

Destiny Family Office, a Destiny Wealth Partners firm, has been named a finalist in the prestigious 11th Annual Family Wealth Report Awards in the Multi-Family Office category (up to and including $2.5 Billion in Assets Under Management/Assets Under Advisement).

According to ClearView Financial Media, publisher of Family Wealth Report, “The Annual Family Wealth Report Awards recognize the most innovative and exceptional firms, teams and individuals serving the family office, family wealth and trusted advisor communities in North America.”

“We founded our firm with a mission and purpose forged by what we saw as an unanswered need in the marketplace: families seeking advocacy, compelling wealth and investment management capabilities, and execution—without compromise,” said Tom Ruggie, ChFC®, CFP®, Founder and CEO of Destiny Family Office.

“While we serve many families, we operate as though we are the team serving a single family. We seek to get to know them intimately, coming to appreciate both their articulated and unarticulated needs, their challenges and aspirations. Only then can we truly deliver an exceptional experience uniquely tailored to them—a hallmark of our firm.

“From the perspective of our clients, it’s more than how we manage their financial needs and implement strategies; it’s how we stand beside them along their journey, helping them to better navigate the great complexity that encompasses their business, financial and personal worlds.”

The awards are judged by an expert panel of more than 40 judges, and finalists are selected on entrants’ submissions and their response to questions across a range of qualitative and quantitative criteria and performance metrics. The judging process is rigorous and independent.

Winners will be announced May 2, 2024, at the Family Wealth Report Gala at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City.
