Living our values

Although I once believed I would pursue an artistic career, I’ve learned that the curiosity and creativity that guided my interests could be even better applied to the dynamic and rewarding environments of investing. The collective payoff requires a different form of blood, sweat and tears, and I find the value “we learn, adapt and grow” to be highly instructive for driving novel insights en route to the best journey and the best outcomes.
