AlTi Tiedemann Global Extends US Footprint Through Acquisition of Midwest Family Office, Envoi

Press Release Published May 9, 2024

AlTi continues to execute strategy to expand scale and reach of its global ultra-high-net-worth (“UHNW”) wealth management business in existing and new markets.

NEW YORK, NY, May 9, 2024 – AlTi Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALTI) (“AlTi” or the “Company”), a leading independent global wealth manager with over $70 billion in combined assets, announces the acquisition of Envoi, LLC (“Envoi”), a leading family office focused on multi-generational family wealth with assets under management (AUM) of approximately $3.0 billion.

This follows AlTi’s recent acquisition of US-based independent advisory firm East End Advisors, as AlTi accelerates its strategy to become the leading global independent wealth management platform for the UHNW segment, with targeted expertise in alternatives.

In line with this strategic goal, AlTi is using funding of up to $450 million from Allianz X and Constellation Wealth Capital to fund its mergers and acquisitions pipeline and organic growth activities.

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Envoi is a well-established management-owned family office with a service offering and client base that is strongly aligned with AlTi’s. This follows AlTi’s recent growth in Dallas, with the hiring of Richard Joyner as Head of Central US, to lead expansion in this key US region.

Michael Tiedemann, Chief Executive Officer of AlTi Tiedemann Global, said:

“I am delighted to announce that Envoi is joining AlTi as we continue to execute our strategy to become the destination of choice for families, family offices and foundations looking for best-in-class wealth management solutions and services. Envoi’s Principals have worked together for decades and have built a firm with similar values to AlTi, catering to entrepreneurial and multi-generational families looking to preserve, safeguard and grow their wealth.”

Ryan Steensland, Principal of Envoi, said:

“As we contemplated the next phase in our evolution, AlTi Tiedemann Global emerged as the best partner to deliver a permanent family office solution to our 35 client families. They share our commitment to represent the best interests of clients and seek excellence in providing customized and innovative strategies to grow wealth. Combining with a firm of AlTi Tiedemann’s global stature will enhance opportunities for our Minneapolis-based staff and support our commitment to growing our Midwest presence.”

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close early in the third quarter.

Advisors

Houlihan Lokey, Inc. is serving as AlTi’s financial and tax diligence advisor. Seward and Kissel LLP is acting as AlTi’s legal advisor. Piper Sandler & Co. and Stinson LLP are serving as financial advisor and legal advisor, respectively, to Envoi.
