Considering the rich got richer during the lockdown, NFL franchises are selling for close to double what Terry paid, & hydrocarbons are selling for twice what they were 2 years ago, it seems reasonable he's gone from ~5B to $7.7B since buying the Bills.

Billionaires helping billionaires to stay billionaires. Or millionaires to become billionaires. 

Wayyy over my head, I don't even know what people do with that sort of money. Give me a few million and I'll retire, live comfortably within my means for the rest of my days.

I read the article and still can't tell what the company does.

Nothing.  Except find ways for the very wealthy to become even more wealthy.  Financial advisory is a scam.  If they were all so great advisors would they not all be wealthy and retired?  I expect they spend a lot of time sourcing tax dodge sceams too.

the company provides “back-office support for a consortium of independent advisory firms … .”

Confirmed: Terry reads this board and saw the recent chatter about Golisano and Paychex.

Yeah, that's the sentence that tells me absolutely nothing about what the company does.

@Eleven , I assume you are an attorney - either a sole practitioner or part of a firm. You are the one who interacts with the clients but there are other people that clients rarely, if ever, see that perform other necessary activities in support your firm's operation. In advisory firm parlance, those other people are 'back office support'. There's a lot that goes on there particularly with respect to custody, trading, regulatory and compliant matters among many others.

The numbers are interesting. If the stated goal is $40B in assets and the advisory firms charge 1% (to make numbers round) then by Bison Wealth charging the advisory firms 10% for back office support (again for simplicity) its revenue will be $40M annually. If it's cost to provide that support is $20 - 30M that's a healthy margin. I'm not sure what competitive advantage Bison Wealth can provide over existing firms in that business. They feel like they've figured it out, obviously.

Better yet you can save a few million and then retire comfortably.

@Sabres Fan in NS This is an erroneous broad based criticism. Every single one of my 190 clients would vehemently disagree with you. (I just 'outed' myself).

Sorry, buddy.  No offense intended.  I know you just want to help your clients as do I.  I'm no financial guru though.  Just a CPA.

Cheers ... 🍻

I can't wait for us to plan that parade.

No worries NS. All good. I'm sure in your profession you must see via your clients' 1099s a lot of questionable, if not unscrupulous, investment activity. Sadly.

Paychex is the very definition of back office support.

I feel like back office support has a fairly clear meaning, even while YMMV across industries.

I cannot imagine back office support tailored expressly to investment firms though…

Although this helped a little.

Granddad could invest in a decent t-shirt.

I am considerably younger than he is, and I don’t have a decent t-shirt.  I don’t have use for them outside of a gym.   (@Drunkardwill probably appear to call me Mister Peanut again.)

He's got the budget for a fashion consultant and he owns the god damned team, can he have a branded shirt?

Are there seriously guys who give a flying F what the F other guys wear? And then based on the guys income, care to another level? I mean really? God I’m glad I’m not hung up on what Terry wears/doesn’t wear.
