Specializing in managing sensitive and often complex family financial issues, we believe in harmony, equilibrium and protecting assets. Having worked with powerful families in Europe, the US, and Asia, Ann understands that although the culture might be different, families still want similar outcomes … a sense of belonging, a way to contribute, sharing the family wealth among the next generations, and leaving a legacy that celebrates their life.
When the world was watching the 1997 “Handover”, Ann Cooley started Pacific Hawk because she sensed that Hong Kong/China would be a powerful financial player on the global stage. It was also at this time that she specifically selected the Hawk and the Chinese character, Yuan as symbols for her company.
The Hawk represents courage and hope, wisdom, strength and vision. The Yuan is symbolic of money and vitality. Using the Yuan as the foundational base and the Hawk together embody stability, especially as it relates to maintaining wealth and family values.
