Karl Feitelberg’s Biography

Karl Feitelberg is Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Sterling Resources, Ltd. and Sterling Resources International of Bermuda, Ltd. He is a licensed Insurance Advisor, overseeing all areas involving specialized life insurance services with a distinct focus on wealth transfer and accumulation strategies for UHNW families as well as family enterprise succession and estate planning. Sterling serves regional, national and international clients and specializes in estate planning strategies with an aim to provide liquidity and to reduce gift, estate and generational taxation.

With more than four decades of experience and a business model deeply embedded in core family principles and values, the success of Sterling is a testament to Karl’s grandfather’s entrepreneurial spirit that initiated the Feitelberg legacy in the insurance industry over 100 years ago. As a youth, and throughout his career, Karl has been fortunate to travel extensively and has been exposed to many cultures. These experiences aided him in developing an exceptional focus and understanding of individual client needs and a sincere commitment to providing ongoing service to his clients.

The firm also advocates and advises clients and prospective clients in related areas, sharing its network of family offices, leading trust and estate planners, tax advisors and wealth managers. Sterling also provides introductions to other client-centric firms that perform services that Sterling itself does not.
