THE NEED TO FILL (For us, for you)

  • Traditional investment vehicles, managers, have built in biases
  • Stability of fees to pay for manager infrastructure, manager franchise vs client objectives
  • Inattention to Family succession and generational objectives and continuity
  • Stability and growth of assets to insure manager wealth vs creating client wealth (or client wealth is coincidental)
  • ​Amoral investing - no attempts to "do well while doing good"
  • Are you frustrated by the high fees paid for low returns paid to indifferent strangers, organizations?  
  • NEED TO FILL: An investment manager operating with a community of interest among client and manager - not a conflict
