Private Ocean Hits a Milestone

Over One Billion Dollars in AUM

SAN RAFAEL, Calif.--()--Private Ocean hit a new milestone this month when assets under management (AUM) topped $1,000,000,000.

“This has been a Private Ocean growth goal for quite some time,” explained Richard Stone, Co-Founder. “It gives us the ability to provide greater resources for our clients and ensures that we will be able to serve them and their families well into the future,” said Greg Friedman, CEO/Co-Founder. At this level, Private Ocean can remain personal with its relationships but also more powerful in the expertise it can offer clients. “In addition, being larger gives our next generation employees and owners the opportunity to carry Private Ocean sustainably into the future, while continuing the mission and passion for excellence on which our company was founded,” added Friedman.
