Innovation & Family Office

We have an unwavering commitment to our clients to continuously bring the latest research, technology and practices across all of our service offerings. Our clients are the reason we started this company, and we strive to make their experience as efficient, convenient and timely as possible. We strongly believe in transparency and working together as a partner with our clients to help them build their legacy.

Family Office Expertise

Bison was founded by The Terry and Kim Pegula Family Office known as East Asset Management in conjunction with operating partner Teton Capital Partners founded by Brad Ball and his team of executives.

Our team has worked with ultra-high net worth families for decades, and that experience affords us the expertise to bring those types of exclusive family office tools to all Bison clients. Many of our advisors are geared towards handling a concentrated number of clients, allowing them to give each individual the time and attention they deserve.

Terry and Kim Pegula built their wealth through research and exploration in the oil and gas business. Over time they have expanded their wealth through investments in other industries, including sports and entertainment, as well as financial services. This connection has given us the experience to empower our clients who have substantial wealth to build a legacy for their families.

Charitable planning is often very important to our families. Not only do they want to give back to their communities, but they also need proper planning to ensure they get the tax benefits. We provide advice on charitable trust structures, donor advised funds, community and private foundations, and other philanthropic planning opportunities. We advise our clients on the best way to give while reducing taxable income, capital gains taxes, and estate taxes.
