Our services

Our Services

Tocqueville is an asset-management firm. But under that umbrella, we provide a wide range of services evolved over 30-plus years managing the assets of wealthy families:

Asset Management

Our investment-policy decisions begin with building a relationship with our clients and their unique objectives. Only through this process can we develop customized investment and wealth-management strategies that align and evolve with our clients’ short- and long-terms needs. The portfolios that we build are goals-based; they focus on client needs rather than immediate returns.

For example, a portfolio designed to maintain purchasing power over successive generations is different from a portfolio designed to make significant distributions to charity over time. We listen to our clients, and tailor each portfolio’s objectives and risk parameters based upon what we hear and, of course, the experience and expertise our people bring to the table.

Private Banking Through BNY Mellon, N.A.**

Private Banking services available to Tocqueville clientele include the Investment Credit Line (ICL), which is structured for financing needs of $1 million or more. The ICL is a flexible line of credit that provides a convenient source of borrowing for personal or business needs, such as major purchases, unexpected expenses, tax obligations, or investment opportunities. With competitive, LIBOR-based pricing, no minimum draw or pre-payment penalties, and interest charged only on the amount borrowed, the ICL is a cost-effective alternative to selling assets, depleting cash reserves, or borrowing against securities through a margin account.

A broad range of custom-tailored mortgage solutions are also available, including adjustable-rate and fixed-rate residential mortgages for single-family homes, condos, and co-ops. Our clients have access to flexible programs and options – construction financing, 100-percent financing with the pledge of qualified assets in lieu of a cash down payment, and hybrid mortgages – often closing within 30 days. We work with BNY Mellon, which, as an experienced portfolio lender, provides clients with benefits such as insulation from secondary-market guidelines and restrictions and customized solutions tailored to their distinct liquidity needs.
