Our Team

We’re all about you: Your goals are our goals.

Though Sand Hill Global Advisors seeks investment opportunities worldwide, we operate from a single office in Palo Alto, California. We believe physical proximity, and the fact that many of our professionals have worked together for a long time, facilitate effective communication and decision-making.

The Sand Hill team has the experience, the discipline, and the insight to uncover compelling investment opportunities. We share a common philosophical approach to wealth management, and have made a long-term commitment to our clients’ success.
