Sokol Family Office 



Living the life to the fullest means giving back and creating your legacy.  After Natalia Sokolova almost died in the car accident when she had barely turned 17 and was given no chance to walk ever again, she realized how grateful and appreciative we have to be for what we have.  Natalia's life taught her that it is very easy to give up and feel sad for yourself.  It’s much harder to wake up, get out of bed no matter how difficult it is and to take baby steps to make a difference in your life, the life of your family and all other lives you have a capability to touch in an inspiring manner.

Natalia was involved in many charities and helped throughout her finance and modeling career to inspire children/adults  to face the reality and to thrive to achieve what then never thought they could. With her help and many prayers she was able to inspire a number of partially parallelized people to walk again.  She made it her mission to give back every way she can.  Part of our earnings go to help various charities and foundations.  

The firm is not a US securities broker dealer and is not involved in any business that would require registration as a broker-dealer or registered investment advisor.

Strategic Guidance Group is a strategic investor relations consulting agency Founded by Natalia Sokolova (LinkedIn) in 2006 when her main place of residence was NYC.  The initial focus of Guidance Group was the Natural Resources Sector.  In the last 4 years we  shifted our focus to technology. We seek out paradigm shifting technologies in telecom, healthcare, blockchain, cryptocurrency, IoT, Big Data.   We would still occasionally review some deals in mining under special circumstances due to our extensive knowledge and relationships in the space.    

Keys to our success is dedication, reputation and long lasting relationships.  We don't use the traditional Investor Relations approach that leaks funds out of companies' pockets.  Through our strategic investor relations program, investor communications and positioning, investor and analyst targeting, non-deal and deal roadshows, SGG builds awareness, enthusiasm and sponsorship among target audiences to maximize shareholder value for both public and private companies. We partner with public and private companies to design and implement effective, custom-designed IR programs that incorporate industry best practices.

Our clients rely on us to execute results-oriented, cost-effective programs tailored to their companies' circumstances and goals, and to help them take advantage of IR opportunities while managing IR risk. We conduct a careful selection process before we agree to work with a client.   It's a partnership not an engagement. 

We have strategic relationships with other Family Offices, UHNW and HNW Individuals, VC’s and Investment firms that we very carefully integrate with companies we choose to partner with.
