Title: Chief executive officer.
Company: Aspiriant (formerly Kochis Fitz/Quintile).
Base: San Francisco.
Typical size of account: $15 million to $25 million.
Typical client’s net worth: $20 million to $30 million.
Team’s total assets: $4.96 billion.
Watching in ’08: “What could have significant impact on
investment markets is predictable, and that’s the prospect
of tax-rate increases. We are also looking out for inflation.
Inflation has been popping up lately … if this is something
that becomes more permanent, it’s very disconcerting.”
“We are committed to independence forever,” says
Kochis of his firm.
