Mavros Capital Launches Multi-Family Office with $500 Million in AUM, Selects Goldman Sachs Custody Solutions



BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., October 10, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mavros Capital, a diverse-led, multi-family office serving influential families and institutions, today launched with $500 Million in AUM and Goldman Sachs Custody Solutions as its primary custodian.

Led by three entrepreneurial partners, Isaac Richard III, V. David Russell, and Mike Germain, Mavros Capital has created a new paradigm for the wealth management industry by providing a boutique and modern experience that blends culture, investing, and technology for its growing client base.

The initial partners and advisors have a combined $500 million in assets under management, with more advisors in the pipeline. Principals at the firm expect to reach $750 million in total assets by the end of 2024.

“The traditional wealth management client experience is obsolete and needs to be disrupted,” said Isaac Richard III, co-founder and managing partner. “We’ve architected Mavros to be the single point of contact for all familial, financial, philanthropic, and lifestyle-related activity without the constraints of major wirehouses.”

“Leveraging our relationships with venture capital and private equity platforms globally to access compelling investment opportunities for our clients is a top priority,” said Mike Germain, co-founder and managing partner. “It takes talent to become wealthy, but the right mindset and access to remain wealthy.”

Goldman Sachs Custody Solutions: The Ultimate Custodian Choice

Mavros chose Goldman Sachs Custody Solutions as their custodian for its prestigious brand, institutional research, access to a global and alternative investment platform, and safeguarding of client accounts. Mavros clients benefit from Goldman’s more than 150 years of experience working with the world’s leading businesses, entrepreneurs, and institutions, solving their most complex financial problems.

“We believe the Goldman Sachs Custody Solutions platform is a perfect complement to our deliverables,” Richard added, “Access to their scale, coupled with our strategically built client base and ecosystem enables us to evolve as the needs of our families change and remain relevant for the future generations of family members.”

“Leveraging Goldman Sachs Custody Solutions’ platform, Mavros was built and designed to be the ideal choice for clients and advisors who want more dynamic marketplace offerings and better client relationships,” added V. David Russell, co-founder and managing partner. “We are excited to lead the disruption in our industry and set a new standard for clients and advisors.”

About the Founders

Richard began working in the financial services industry at Merrill Lynch and spent the majority of his career at Morgan Stanley. He has also founded a private family foundation, The Isaac Richard Family Foundation, focused on providing financial literacy initiatives for underprivileged communities.

Born in Haiti, Germain understands the issues relating to being perceived as being more successful than childhood friends. He began his professional career as a commercial banker for SunTrust Bank and has worked for Ernst & Young’s assurance practice with rotations in their M&A practice. He then served as chief accounting officer at Canyon Bridge Partners, a $1B private equity firm focused on technology companies. Most recently, Germain was chief financial officer at TRUE Capital Management, with involvement in the venture committee. He is a dual CPA (licensed in the state of Georgia) and CFA charter holder.

Russell began his professional career in private equity with TPG Capital before moving to private wealth management. While working at J.P. Morgan’s Private Bank, he launched their first diverse wealth initiative, now called the Black Wealth Initiative. He is an adjunct professor at the TCU Neeley School of Business and actively serves on multiple non-profit boards with a focus on early childhood education, financial literacy, and economic development.

Headquartered in Beverly Hills, the three Mavros founders are joined by a team of experienced planning, investment, and client service professionals, and supported by innovative technology infrastructure.

      Needs of Private Wealth customers and families worldwide have drastically changed due to the pandemic and banks have had to accelerate efforts to deploy a multi-channel service strategy and safeguard clients’ businesses and wealth against negative impacts of economic uncertainly.

      The Global Private Banking Innovation Awards will recognise the world’s best private banks, wealth managers and asset managers that are championing innovation across advisory, service, products, customer experience and more.
