About us

ABOUT US

We strive to simplify our clients’ lives. We have helped quarterback estate planning services, implement and execute trusts, diversify assets, establish family foundations, lead family meetings and move through life’s transitions. Our experience in trusts and estates can be measured in decades. Our immersion in our clients' lives is highly personal and can be measured in the hugs we get from the families we serve.

WE SWEAT THE DETAILS. AND THE BIG STUFF.

With substantial wealth comes complex decisions, unexpected opportunities, and unique challenges. The Knight Group helps you navigate the day-to-day pathways and significant crossroads of wealth. We help you feel more confident and secure about your present, your future, and your legacy so that you and the people you care about can enjoy not only success, but significance. Located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we are a wealth management team that serves a select group of affluent and ultra-affluent clients throughout the United States. We have built our team as a single source for multiple priorities: family office services access, trust and estate planning services, customized credit and lending, investment management, luxury goods acquisition, and philanthropy. We are intricately involved in clients’ financial lives – both day to day and long term. We look to have an immediate and lasting impact on the clients we serve by streamlining finances, coordinating initiatives across external advisors, broadening access to global resources and restoring time to spend doing other things.

FEW CLIENTS. LOTS OF ATTENTION.

We limit our engagements to a small number of clients. This focus not only gives us the time to understand your needs and wants, it allows us to be readily accessible and accountable. The one-on-one personalized relationships that we develop help foster an enduring trust and mutual respect. Through regular interaction with you and your family, we learn about your priorities, concerns and desires. We review multiple aspects of your financial life to help you create the future as you see it. We strive to simplify clients’ lives.

YOUR WHY. OUR HOW.

We clearly understand that what most clients really care about is achieving the goals that matter to them. We help clients pursue personally meaningful outcomes. Through our interactive process we help clients 1) define goals and priorities, 2) understand the “why” that drives the decisions of each family member, 3) optimize resources and 4) choose effective strategies. Over time, we make the adjustments necessary to help keep clients moving toward these important personal goals. When it comes to investment management, we utilize portfolios ranging in risk exposure from very conservative to very aggressive, from active to passive, from traditional to alternative. We seek to help you identify how much downside risk you are willing to take and then match that to a mix of portfolios designed to help you stay within your volatility guidelines.

A RELATIONSHIP YOU CAN COUNT ON.

We have a burning desire to serve you as you’ve never been served before. We are transparent about the fees we charge. We document our conversations with you so we are both certain that we have heard each other. We strive to exceed your expectations. And, of course, because we are accustomed to working with clients of significant wealth and public profiles, we know the need for strict confidentiality. Investment Management Consultants Association IMCA® is the owner of the certification marks CIMA®; and Certified Investment Management Analyst®.
