The world is changing rapidly, and it can be hard to keep up. This unprecedented uncertainty has led to added stress as everyone must adjust constantly to an ever-changing world. Family businesses can feel especially vulnerable in this climate. Yet there are many family businesses that are thriving during this time. What’s the difference? Clarity, Understanding, and Action.

Ironically, many business owners put their financial planning on pause as they focus on the urgent; after all, there is only so much time in the day. Let Interchange Capital Partners help you navigate the interchange between your business, family, and ownership, giving you more time to focus on your core business.

After doing this for 40 years, we know how to capture your strengths, identify your opportunities, and how to take action in ways that benefit both the business, the family, and the ownership. We have the knowledge to see the full picture and know how to implement plans to make them work for you, regardless of market conditions or the state of the world around you.

Providing Exceptional Service to You & Your Network 

We founded Interchange Capital Partners to act as an advocate for your family business, with your interests in mind. Our meticulous attention to the details of your financial life and our well-coordinated approach allows you to experience confidence and security, no matter what changes are happening.

As a fiduciary, independent registered investment advisory firm, we are dedicated to helping you find clarity in the midst of complex situations, offering experience and knowledge tailored to your circumstances, and recommending plans that create the outcomes you are looking for. 

We’re Here to Help 

My son, Brian, and I work together with our team, so we don’t just have professional experience with family businesses, we have personal experience too. We understand your concerns and challenges, which gives us the ability to have true empathy for different generations as we simultaneously build our business while also preparing for a leadership transition in the future. We’ve worked through the same questions we ask you, and we’ve dealt with a variety of situations and family dynamics, so we understand your obstacles and know that helping you get clarity, understanding, and action will lead to you and your business achieving your goals.

If your family business, or the family business of anyone you might know, needs the personalized touch of a dedicated firm, we would welcome the opportunity to show how we can help. Email us at or call our office at 412-307-4230 to schedule an introductory appointment.
