A five-generation, ultra-high-net-worth family that has been a client of Baker Tilly for over 20 years. They were looking for assistance with bookkeeping, tax information management, bill pay and a financial dashboard to monitor and visualize their cumulative and individual investments.
The family and family office were dissatisfied with their daily accounting arm, and the bill pay had additional logistical problems that made it difficult for Baker Tilly (their tax provider) to provide good service. For example, there were issues with gifts to personal foundations being recorded properly. Their platform also made it difficult to drill down further to details of balances without pulling additional reports.

Baker Tilly and Baker Tilly Wealth Management set out to find a solution and created Family Wealth Insights, which is a technology reporting solution powered by Addepar, and further enhanced with integrations to general ledger systems like Sage Intacct.

Family Wealth Insights gave the family the power to look at their data in many different and timely ways. The family members are excited about the capabilities related to bill pay, automation and being able to look at their net worth as a snapshot, including all of their assets (artwork, values of homes), and all in a timely fashion.
The family members gained real-time insight into investments, net worth, bill pay and more (across family lines, whole family or smaller family groups) through our holistic approach.
