Diamond has a direct investment division that serves as an outsourced alternative assets platform (private equity, venture capital, real estate) for Family Offices that do not have a dedicated alternative assets team. This enables Family Offices to make direct investments in alternative assets without the high cost and inflexibility of traditional fund investing. Diamond has a Wealth Transfer division which reviews estate and gift tax planning objectives in consideration of the Family’s goals and objectives. In doing so, Diamond identifies strategies that may minimize transfer taxes such as gift, estate, and generation skipping taxes while meeting the Family’s planning objectives. The planning is typically in response to specific planning needs which may include transactional planning and structuring, sophisticated inter-generational wealth transfer considerations, wealth preservation, asset protection and distribution strategies and family gifting strategies. Diamond has an investment banking division which provides financial advisory services to middle market companies throughout the world, including institutional private placements of debt and equity, merger and acquisitions advisory, financial restructuring & corporate turnarounds, valuations and strategic consulting services all geared around the unique goals and objectives of Family Offices.
