Living our values

“I am incredibly proud of my family background as a son of immigrants from Baghdad and Vienna. My parents’ ability to learn and adapt to starting over in a foreign country and growing to the family unit I have today is a huge inspiration. That’s why “learn adapt and grow” resonates so much with me – a reminder that often the path to success is rarely a straight line. I not only aspire to use this in my approach to investing, but a life value I also get to pass on as a parent now.”
