Welcome to EM Group

The Laidlaw EM Group has been together for over 10 years offering clients access to unique investments and strategies. Ultra-High Net Worth and High Net Worth Clients have been given pre-IPO access to the Tech Juggernauts of today: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Square, MongoDB, Airbnb…etc.

The group provides advice and guidance ranging from basic diversified portfolios to complex investment strategies. They work very closely with PGIM Custom Harvest to assist clients in developing Tax Efficient Portfolios, often allowing clients with significant capital gains in their portfolios, real estate or closely held businesses to reduce their tax liability and retain more of their hard earned gains for their families.

The group has also successfully worked with private firms in the biotech, medical device and AI space, offering access to capital and liquidity through private placements and the benefit of an initial public offering. In every case, the team provides a custom tailored approach to each client.
