We are deeply opposed to manager ego and all it represents.

We are serious about our strategies and clients; but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

We strive for authenticity and humility when communicating ideas and building relationships.

We avoid noisy performance attribution, and we do not sell recent performance. We do not data mine.

We strive to provide education, perspective, and solutions that drive deep partnerships over time.

We are motivated by purpose rather than money.
