TIGER 21 is North America’s premier peer-to-peer learning
network for high-net-worth investors.
TIGER 21 (The Investment Group for Enhanced Results in the 21st Century) is the premier peer-to-peer learning network
for high net worth investors. TIGER 21’s 225 Members collectively manage approximately $20 billion in investable assets.
Members are entrepreneurs, CEOs, inventors and top executives with backgrounds in financial services, real estate, industrial
and consumer goods, legal services, entertainment and medicine. The TIGER 21 experience centers on improving the
Members’ investment acumen through critique and coaching, as well as exploring common issues of wealth preservation,
estate planning and family dynamics.
Our success is built upon our Members’ willingness to share their
best thinking, experience, curiosity, and integrity with their fellow
Group Members, as well as the entire TIGER 21 community.
The core of the TIGER 21 experience is the Group meetings, which consist of 10-15 Members. They are completely confidential
and managed by professional facilitators. TIGER 21 meetings provide a unique forum for candid discussions and peer-to-
peer relationships among individuals facing similar challenges and opportunities in managing their wealth. Members, who
have risen to exceptional heights within corporations or as entrepreneurs and have built and sold successful businesses, join
TIGER 21 because they recognize these same business skills do not always translate into successfully managing one’s personal
The range of expertise and investment styles among Members, shared in a confidential and intimate environment of trust and
transparency, offers Members unique insights and immeasurable value not found anywhere else.
Founded in 1999, TIGER 21 is headquartered in New York City and has groups in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles,
Miami, New York, Palm Beach, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Tysons Corner, VA, and Washington, DC as well as Canadian
groups in Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary and Montreal.
TIGER 21 is a unique community of wealth creators.
Each Group is defined by its Members, who are diverse in
terms of age, prior business experience, and net worth.
All have been successful in their chosen fields and have a minimum of $10 million in assets to invest. Our Members come
from all segments of industry: some are entrepreneurs who have created, built and sold their own businesses. Others are Wall
Street executives, CEOs of major companies, and real estate investors. Some find value in TIGER 21 while continuing to be
immersed in their jobs, while others have exited their careers and are managing their wealth full time.
The TIGER 21 Group environment provides a safe, confidential, no-pitch environment for Members to explore ideas without
feeling exposed or sold. The dialogue is confidential, vigorous, candid, helpful and fun. Through their Groups, TIGER 21
Members have access to a unique community of individuals who have thought about, been exposed to, or experienced similar
issues and circumstances.
TIGER 21 is not for everyone. Members must be willing to invest their time and be open and honest in their Groups. The
benefits accrue over months and years through unbiased, knowledgeable, insightful advice from high-net-worth people in
Share market insights and discuss how others are
allocating assets in response to market conditions
“The value of TIGER 21 is access -- access to the best minds
and opportunities in the financial world and to a smart and
accomplished membership base. Through TIGER 21, I’ve had a
leading chief investment officer critique my portfolio, a highly
successful entrepreneur share with me his approach to investing
in businesses, and a sounding board of smart and accomplished
Members share their best investments and horror stories with
me. You can’t get that elsewhere.”
– SOCIAL MEDIA ENTREPRENEUR
Build trusted relationships with others who’ve dealt
with similar issues
“One of the great things about joining TIGER 21 has been
interacting with people who are in the same boat I’m in. It is
comforting to be able to talk about my fears with peers who
weren’t trying to sell me anything. My TIGER 21 group is the
only place where I can be completely open about my wealth
and how I am investing it. The Members of my group truly care
about one another and exchange feedback – but not judgment –
on many personal and financial topics. I truly look forward to
our monthly meetings.”
Identify and reduce portfolio risk to preserve wealth
“The portfolio defense process has forced me to develop my own investment approach to the point where I have a long-term written
investment policy, which guides all of my investment activity. Having a plan I am comfortable with has simplified an area of my life where I
was wasting a huge amount of time dealing with uncertainty and complexity. It’s very helpful to have frank discussions about investments,
advisors and other issues with a group of people you know well who are smart, have your best interest at heart but have no financial stake
in what you decide. I find that I often learn the most from hearing about mistakes others have made – we are all very comfortable telling the
group what we did wrong and why.”
– RETIRED HEDGE FUND MANAGER
Meet innovative asset managers, share strategies and
deal flow, and access favorable investments
“I told myself in joining that if TIGER 21 could provide me with
one investment insight a year, it would pay for itself. I’m already
years ahead. This has become the place for me to exchange
moneymaking ideas. Our group meetings have an atmosphere of
openness and camaraderie, very conducive to honest analysis and
revealing dialogue. Members inject their unique experiences and
expertise into each discussion. Their idea generation and analytical
firepower is impressive.”
– INVESTMENT MANAGER AND PRIVATE INVESTOR
Integrate timely opportunities in estate planning and
philanthropy into a long-term plan
“The Members of my group genuinely like and trust one another.
As a result, we feel very comfortable sharing sensitive information
and discussing our personal dilemmas. I have also received some
very caring and insightful advice from other Members regarding my
family dynamics and estate planning questions that I simply would
never have received from a paid ‘wealth advisor.’”

Richard D. Harig, Chair of Chicago TIGER 21 is the founder of Legacy Resources, a financial and
legacy planning firm specializing in the artful blending of financial and estate design with the
challenges of living a legacy, and leaving one of significance.
Rick’s journey to this unique niche began during his years in Austria. Following his employ with Boise
Cascade, Rick enrolled at the University of Vienna, and gave tours of Central Europe to support
himself. He was a guide and scout then; he’s still one, now.
In 1994, Rick recognized a gap in the wealth advisory industry and created a new category of advisor
called The Legacy Strategist™. This is a professional, schooled in the art and science of financial
planning, who assists clients in the survey of their lives, and with the search for legacy clues to the
larger purpose for themselves and their resources.
In 2002, a client and TIGER member introduced Rick to TIGER 21. His presentation expanded the
wealth conversation beyond investments, taxes, and cash flow, to that of meaning, impact, and
legacy. Since then, Rick has invested himself in many lives. He looks forward to assisting TIGER
members in the next leg of their journey.
For some, the next leg calls for growing or acquiring a business or expanding their philanthropies.
As a strategist, Rick has responded to both needs for creating a larger future, in order to live a larger
life. From 2007 through 2012, Rick led a business development effort for a hedge fund manager in
the family office space, dramatically increasing the assets under management.
