What didn’t exist at the time had to be built.
Twenty-seven years ago, a small group of families with significant resources were looking for objective, customized, and sophisticated financial guidance. What didn’t exist at the time had to be built, and the team that came together to serve these families was the beginning of Prairie Capital.
While our firm has grown, we remain true to our original purpose.
Since our founding, we have grown to manage more than $6 billion in assets for ultra-high net worth individuals, families, and financial institutions. And while our firm has grown over the years, we remain true to our original purpose: to help people manage the complexities that come with substantial financial resources while charting a path to achieve their goals and objectives.
Our core focus is multi-generational wealth management and financial planning. Clients often note our reputation for identifying unique private investment opportunities and alignment of interest as our partners frequently invest their personal capital alongside that of our clients. This commitment to having “skin in the game,” combined with our role as fiduciaries, means that the advice we provide is objective and transparent, qualities that set our firm apart.
A time-tested and prudent approach to wealth management
Prairie Capital’s wealth management philosophy centers on providing high-quality, objective, and flexible services tailored specifically to the needs of each client.
Our founders recognized early on that the goals, objectives, and aspirations of every client are unique, which is why financial plans and portfolios should be as well. We pride ourselves on a comprehensive approach that ultimately ends with a wealth management strategy that is tailored to your family’s specific circumstances.
As it relates to investment management, the firm serves as an objective advisor to clients on the multitude of investment strategies and structures available. After designing a client-focused portfolio allocation, we evaluate best-in-class investment managers to manage various asset classes, using a quantitative and qualitative due diligence process refined over our twenty-seven-year history.See our services

Individuals within the group have earned advanced degrees including J.D. and M.B.A., as well as designations including CPA and CFA.
Operations, Compliance & Administrative Support
The operations team is responsible for processing asset transfers and authorizations, completing documentation to open and maintain accounts, and technology integration. The compliance team is responsible for maintaining registration and annual compliance filings, as well as monitoring federal and state securities laws and regulations. The administrative support team coordinates matters across the various Prairie Capital teams to provide a cohesive client experience.
The client services team works in tandem with the Managing Directors to serve clients. This includes responding to client inquiries in a prompt manner, ensuring documents are readily available and secure, and coordinating the work of investment managers and other third-party service providers.
The client reporting team produces performance reports for both traditional investments and alternative strategies. Client reporting can be customized and tailored to individual needs, including in-depth reporting on public and private investments, as well as the ability to report on assets custodied or managed on other platforms.
