While the firm has grown over the past three decades, it remains rooted in and guided by a few defining principles:
Research Driven

In-depth fundamental equity research is critical to investment success. Only through a deep understanding of individual companies, their markets and opportunities, can a firm hope to find and exploit market inefficiencies and valuable opportunities for its clients on a consistent basis. This is why we put research at the core of everything we do – it drives all aspects of the firm.

Relationship Centered

As an investment services firm, ours is a “relationship” business and foremost is the client relationship.

We devote ourselves to advancing and protecting the reputation that we’ve gained over many years – one of credibility, integrity and independence. As a privately-held and employee-owned firm, our reputation and integrity is on the line every day.
