BOSTON, May 18, 2021 -- BNY Mellon Wealth Management named Chad Van Den Top as Senior Client Strategist. Chad will advise ultra-high-net-worth families, business owners, private equity and hedge fund principals, and their family offices with their comprehensive wealth structuring advice, including management of concentrated stock positions, estate planning strategies and family governance. Chad also works closely with foundations and endowments. Based in Boston, Chad reports to Vicary Graham, Regional President of the New England Region.
Chad joins BNY Mellon Wealth Management from Northern Trust where he was a Wealth Strategist in San Francisco, focused on providing wealth structuring advice to the firm's ultra-high-net-worth Silicon Valley clients and prospects. Prior to joining Northern Trust, Chad was a Trust & Estate Specialist with Merrill Lynch's trust company. In those roles, and in his current role, Chad draws upon his nearly ten years of experience as an attorney focused on transactions, tax and wealth transfer planning.
"Chad brings his deep experience serving Silicon Valley's wealth creators and their families to BNY Mellon in New England," said Graham. "His extensive knowledge of trust strategies and his experience delivering fiduciary solutions will support the delivery and execution of our Active Wealth program to clients and prospects."
Chad earned his J.D. from Chicago-Kent College of Law, his LL.M. in taxation from Georgetown University Law Center and his Bachelor's degree in Horticulture from Iowa State University.
Chad is an active member of the community. During his time in San Francisco, he drew upon his horticulture and investment background while serving as Investment Committee Chair of the San Francisco Botanical Garden and his passion around golf to support The First Tee, an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to kids and teens. He looks forward to bringing his interests to similar causes in the New England area.
