Building a successful business can take a great deal of emotional and financial investment, and often the lines between your personal and business finances can become blurred as you pour your heart, soul and personal savings into your business.
Financing Business Growth
Understanding how to most efficiently finance growth by leveraging personal assets while ensuring that you maintain an income can be tricky. The last thing you want to focus on is how to do it, instead directing your energy to your business. Working with a Client Advisor, our Personal Lending team can help you finance your business growth by pledging marketable securities or other assets as collateral.
Managing Personal Income
If you own a pass-through business like an LLC, managing your personal income can be challenging. These types of businesses naturally intertwine your personal and business taxes and understanding how to invest in your business properly to avoid overtaxing you personally is challenging. Our Wealth Strategists help business owners manage this challenge all the time.
To a business owner, the line between personal and business banking is often blurred. Day-in and day-out they pour themselves into their work and with us, they have a banking partner willing to do the same.
We need a responsive banking partner...and that's something that Boston Private gives us.

A small business that moves big things.
Meet George. This is his WHY.
When you own and operate a unique business, there needs to be an equally unique approach to supporting it. Here, you’ll find a partner who understands how it came to be, how it’s evolved, and how it’ll continue to grow for generations to come.
Boston Private has kind of grown with us as we have grown. They've helped us transition to where we are today and it's a great relationship.

Case Study | Family Business Owner
A son in his late 60s owned a 50-year-old family business. His goal was to transition the business to the next generation—eight cousins who had not been involved in the business yet.
He faced three main challenges:
- Actively re-engaging distant family
- Establishing a formal governance structure
- Creating a strong new leadership team
To determine the services most appropriate for the Business Owner, his Client Advisor first employed our time-tested approach to planning by fully assessing his needs. With his situation defined, the experts at Boston Private Wealth Family Office Services then designed and implemented six custom solutions for his needs.
Case Study | Entrepreneur
The founder of a successful business took his company public in an IPO. After this liquidity event, he needed to create a personalized investment strategy to manage his assets and address his family’s short and long-term financial needs, which the founder had not fully identified.
His Boston Private Client Advisor began guiding the Entrepreneur through our time-tested approach to planning, which included a full assessment of his goals and needs. The Client Advisor then assembled a personalized team of in-house experts specifically suited for the entrepreneur’s unique situation—including specialists in investment management, philanthropy, tax and estate planning.
