Our People Are The Pillars of Our Success
We started this firm after seeing what works in investment guidance- and what doesn’t. We reject groupthink, shallow analysis, and the herd mentality. And we’ve built a team that reflects our key approaches to investment guidance.
What happens when you build a team of engineers, portfolio managers, bartenders, researchers, military officers, advisors, landscapers, hedge fund professionals, and camp counselors? Advice that you won’t get anywhere else.
We read everything. We watch everything. We immerse ourselves in the unique needs of our clients and their clients. It’s about collecting data and using it.
We’ve seen plenty of up’s and plenty of down’s. We’ve seen bubbles burst and strategies turn out to be built on sand. We don’t go for the shiny thing — just the best thing.
