Managing your nonfinancial assets

Specialty assets – also known as nonfinancial or real assets – offer you another way to diversify your portfolio. These assets may include farms, ranches, real estate, closely held businesses or natural resources rights. They can offer significant upside potential but also present oversight and administrative challenges.

From acquisition and sale support to management oversight to succession planning, the U.S. Bank Specialty Asset Management Group can help provide effective stewardship of your specialty assets.
