About Luminary
Luminary powers how advisors connect their client’s financial assets with generational gifting and philanthropic giving goals.

Some $80 trillion will pass between generations in the decades ahead. And high net worth asset owners say they want their advisors to lead them through this process. Today, however, these same clients report a 70% gap between the services they expect and what they are receiving.

At the heart of this disconnect is the lack of integrated systems – making delivery of trust & estate advice costly and cumbersome. Luminary’s collaboration platform brings together wealth, legal, and tax advisors to scale complex workflows and enable holistic strategy transparency.

The time has come to bring technology-led efficiency and access to legacy planning. We’re building the foundation for the next generation of advisor services, and helping more people unlock meaning in their money.

Luminary’s founding team has deep experience in this space, and in building successful software businesses. Our backgrounds include AllianceBernstein, Blend, Origin, ChanZuckerberg, Peloton, Compass, Databricks, and Goldman Sachs.

We are backed by leading venture capital investors, prominent wealth management firms, and several family offices. And we’re supported by a group of esteemed advisors who are active in the trust & estate industry.
