We have Valuable Experience 

Case Studies

Client situation

Business Owner

This business owner is in the process of selling their business.


The business owner desired to reposition the business before the sale, gifting illiquid shares to heirs, and ensuring a successful company sale. Once the sale was completed, their aim was to diversify their investments to reduce the concentrated risk they had experienced throughout their career and alleviate stress.

They also felt the current economic backdrop was dangerous due to governments overspending and central banks overprinting money and were seeking advice outside of a traditional stock and bond portfolio to protect against these risks.

Our Guidance

Professional Adviser Team

Pre-planning is key before a business sale is enacted. We helped them evaluate their current roster of advisers and worked with them to orchestrate sophisticated pre-sale planning that largely resulted in tax-efficient gifting to their family. We brought in an estate attorney experienced with many business sales of similar scale.

Consolidated Reporting

We provide online reporting systems that allow consolidated reporting across all family holdings including the tracking of private investments and cash flows, with access to reports available on our private client portal 24/7.

Financial Data Aggregation

We serve as the middleman for tracking and collecting tax statements (1099s, K-1s) for all family investments and distributing them directly to the family’s accountant, saving time and money.

Access to Deal Flow

Our connection to the family office space allowed us to bring unique private investment alternatives to the family in areas including direct deals in private credit, venture capital, and real estate.

Expertise in Hard Assets

We helped secure the storage of physical gold and silver in Brinks-equivalent vaults in the US, Zurich, and Singapore.  This ensures their metals are held securely outside of the banking system.

Lines of Credit

Through our expertise, we facilitated the negotiation of advantageous lines of credit, ensuring they have a reliable option for unforeseen borrowing needs.

Wealth Transfer

We worked with the estate attorney and CPA to restructure the company pre-sale and to gift discounted interests in the company to trusts for children.  This allowed a tax-efficient and leveraged transfer of wealth to the next generation.

Liability Protection

We recommended a legal structure in conjunction with the estate attorney that limited liability for the family. Similarly, we worked with the insurance agent to ensure enhanced protection in areas where the family might have liabilities.

Tax Minimization

We helped harvest taxable losses to offset against the business during the year of its sale.

Family Education

We serve as a valuable educational resource for their children, providing essential support and resources for their learning journey.

Our Economic Views

We are economic thought leaders following the free-market oriented Austrian economics, whereas most advisors follow Keynsian Economics and tout the merits of money printing and government intervention. Global central banks have printed tens of trillions of dollars out of thin air as global debts exploded. Yet most advisory firms act like this is just another “normal” investment environment and allocate capital the way they’ve always done so. In our opinion, this is not a normal environment and requires an acute understanding that the pillars of the world are now built on a mirage of bubbles with serious consequences for growing and protecting wealth.

In an attempt to offset continued economic weakness, governments are reacting with spending, debt issuance, and intervention in the economy on a scale without precedent in modern history. Although these policies may buy time, they cannot solve the underlying issues. Ultimately, governments will repay debt with their last remaining option – printing more money. As money floods the system, this will drive inflation higher despite continued weakness in the economy.

Under these circumstances, the current conventional model of a static bond and stock mix will fail. It will fail investors in realizing reasonable returns. It will fail investors in preserving their purchasing power after inflation. And it will fail investors in protecting their capital and securing their retirement.

The conventional experts do not foresee such risks. But these same experts missed the prior 2000 tech bubble and 2008 housing and stock bubble.  Today they are missing the bubble in government debt and the ramifications of unbridled money creation. WindRock understands these issues and positions clients to not only minimize their risk associated with these dangers, but to profit from them.
