Our history

Founded in 1923 by the three sons of John Pitcairn Jr., co-founder of Pittsburgh Plate Glass (now PPG Industries), Pitcairn operated as a single family office for over 60 years. In 1987, recognizing the scalability of the resources that were in place, Pitcairn became a multi-family office and formed a private trust company. In 2008, we transformed our investment offering to an industry-leading open architecture platform that aligns our interests with those of our clients and has delivered exceptional results net of fees and taxes. In 2023, Pitcairn celebrated its centennial anniversary. Regarded as a pioneer of the family office industry, Pitcairn continues to redefine the industry standard for family offices.

Our people

The tenure of our staff, the collaborative culture in which we work, and our commitment to delivering an exceptional Pitcairn experience all contribute to why we are consistently recognized as an industry-leading family office.
