How we work with you

Buying a unique property


Cara Mancini is a former top executive of a large multinational firm, whose personal wealth is in excess of $100 million. Her complex holdings include illiquid and unique assets.

She has decided to buy a 250-acre ranch in Wyoming to create a family compound, so her banker introduces her to a real estate colleague with expertise in one-of-a-kind properties.

Taking into consideration Mrs Mancini’s overall financial management strategy, we then tailor the financing of her purchase.

Our wealth planners work with Mrs. Mancini, her attorney and her tax advisor to create an appropriate structure to hold the ranch, incorporating her stipulation that Citi trustees will administer the ranch once she can no longer do so.

Given the overall complexity of her holdings, Mrs Mancini decides to appoint Citi Trust as executor of her estate, so as to spare her family the burden of estate settlement later on.
