Three Decades of Investment in Common
We were founded on the simple precept of: Investment in Common. We invest with our clients and align our interests with those of our clients. We buy what they buy (wherever suitable). We are independent. Given this alignment and independence, we have the freedom to focus on what matters most: building value for our clients. We are committed to establishing and maintaining long-term relationships based on insight, integrity and trust. We seek to deliver superior long-term results based on fundamental analysis and independent thinking.
Mission & Values
Our mission is to be a trusted advisor to our clients, understanding their goals, desires and aspirations. Our advice is based on discussions. It encompasses broad areas of need, whether or not investment related. We believe that this approach will build long-term relationships that will evolve with our clients’ goals. It allows us to provide our clients with unbiased and differentiated advice in managing their wealth, often providing them unique investment opportunities that fit their needs and goals.
Our clients come first. It is this philosophy that ultimately became our reputation. We believe that clients should be engaged in a fair, honest and transparent manner. In doing so, we build trust, respect and long-lasting relationships, which will serve as the cornerstone of our success.
We do not view our firm as having “bosses” and “subordinates”. While we do have a clear organizational structure, we believe strongly that each member of our team adds significant value to our organization and must have the ability to express themselves in an open and honest fashion. In this way, each team member can contribute the most and will have a firm with a group of energized, satisfied and involved team members, ones who are eager to serve the needs of our clients and our firm.
Capital, Breadth and Principal Mentality
Our long-term relationships, our strong capital position, our principal mentality (Investment in Common), and the professionalism with which we approach decisions helps to set us apart in the financial services industry.
We have observed that the most innovative and distinguished financiers in history have not operated from the largest platforms. Rather, they provide their clients with unique, differentiated and tailored investments and solutions. That requires stepping away from the standard wisdom and the standard investments. This is by design. We think and act like owners because we invest alongside our clients in the investments we offer them – following our motto of “Investment in Common”.
