  • We understand the million little decisions we make daily define our culture and sets the trajectory of our firm.
  • We quickly translate mistakes into valuable lessons. We communicate them, take responsibility for them, analyze them, share them, and vow never to repeat them.
  • We delegate authority, but never responsibility.
  • We are fierce, but fair, competitors. Our ethics stay intact irrespective of the situation or the behavior of others.
  • We foster and encourage environment-friendly policies and practices.

  • We encourage debate and open communication. Our leaders expect constructive feedback and actively promote an idea of meritocracy.
  • We face facts, knowing our future is only as strong as our willingness to confront our current reality.

We play to win by exceeding client expectations and executing with a sense of urgency and purpose.

  • We are action oriented. We identify problems and take ownership—“I’m not required to, I’m not paid to, It’s not my job to…” are not in our vocabulary.
  • We put our clients’ interests first—then our firm, our team, and ourselves.
  • We viciously prioritize our energy and time to focus on driving sustainable value to our clients and sustainable growth for our firm.
  • We are fanatical about each client. We put forth the time and effort to understand them. We listen to them, care about them as individuals, work to identify their needs before they do, know that execution supersedes intention, and strive to become their irreplaceable strategic advisors.
  • We harness our global reach and capabilities to benefit our clients, knowing our impact is greater as a global firm than a collection of local offices.
  • We are stewards of our clients’ fees. We will not waste money or time on things that don’t translate into client impact and success.

  • We embrace problem solving and innovation to succeed in an investment landscape of increasing complexity, sophistication and precision.

  • We embrace an open architecture approach, seeking the best capabilities possible.
  • We believe that informed diversification is the closest thing to a free lunch, reducing risk while allowing strong returns to be preserved.
  • We do not closet index. We ensure there is real value for clients in any diversification we seek.
  • We have understandable quantitative models and a structured process to keep us grounded, avoiding the fear and greed which undermines even the best investors.
