About us

Our Genesis

One of the earliest SEBI registered Investment Advisory firms in India, we are a boutique Multi Family Office, dedicated to providing you with advice on both investment and non-investment needs. While our journey started as an Investment Advisory firm, over the last few years, we have added capabilities to be a holistic Multi-family Office. We made a humble beginning in 2013, with a few well respected families entrusting their wealth objectives to us. While our key functions are handled from Bangalore, we also have presence in Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi. We operate on a pure advisory model, completely aligned to you with zero conflict of interest. We exist to preserve, nurture, enhance and transition your wealth across generations. Being true to our name ’Entrust’, we make sure that our clients are assured of us as their trusted partner. Our philosophy of adopting a long term approach and simplicity results in addressing the inherent risks clients face on an ongoing basis. We believe in fostering enduring relationships with our clients with the end objective of easing their bandwidth and ushering in peace of mind through our transparent and unconditional approach.

Our Belief

We exist because our clients deserve an able partner to help protect and nurture their wealth.

Our clients made money quietly, transparently, diligently and exponentially. But wealth isn’t everything to them. It’s the means to pursue their true calling.

They do not believe in vast wealth.They believe in Wise Wealth.

We, at Entrust, are the custodians and growth merchants of such Wise Wealth. As our clients chase newer rainbows, we shall safeguard and help plan their multi-dimensional futures. They want the next generation to inherit not just the money, but also their values and the freedom that comes along with exceptional wealth. As ombudsmen of their wealth, we ensure that their financial legacy is passed forward to the chosen heirs in the most efficient manner possible.

Our clients have no interest in featuring in yesterday’s popularity contests. They are incubators of tomorrow’s best ideas. It is therefore fitting that we invest in patient yet highly innovative portfolios on their behalf. Like them, our processes shall be discreet, dignified and accessible.

Our clients always have money for worthwhile causes. Our Social Investment team and our own philanthropic outlook will help them expand their social footprint and create a truly lasting legacy.

Wise Wealth ennobles. Together, we and our clients shall continue to create and nurture Wise Wealth.

Our Team

The Entrust team has been hand-picked for their strengths, expertise and experience. Our emphasis is on empathy, proactive approach and an inherent like-mindedness in our philosophy.
