"We are investors" helps explain the essence of our firm. This simple, singularly focused identity defines what attracts clients and inspires colleagues who come to work every day and share in our mission - to partner with our clients to achieve their unique objectives. There is no house view, no top-down mandate directing our portfolio managers. Our attention is entirely directed at managing client assets. Our fiduciary responsibilities are instilled in our employees and are reflected in our approach to client assets.
