people make successful wealth management decisions. During his tenure with U.S.

client-centric services. Inspired by the latter, he was set on building a new kind of
organization, one devoted to client advocacy, and to comprehensive wealth planning.
Peter takes great pride in offering objective and transparent solutions to individuals
and families that need collaborative planning in managing the complexities of
generational family wealth. Peter works closely with clients to coordinate all aspect of
their financial strategy by acting as their family CFO. His goal is to give clients the
comfort of knowing that the financial aspects of their lives are diligently managed by
estate attorneys, CPAs, insurance specialists and other experts they can trust.
Born into the business, Peter benefits from a lifetime of wealth planning knowledge
learned from his father and co-founder,Doug Woodring, who has been consulting with
successful families in the San Francisco Bay area for several decades. Working
together, they bring multi-generational expertiseto their clients. As a successful
entrepreneur, investor and relationship manager, Peter brings valuable insight and
