Impact & Responsibility

Making a difference starts with taking responsibility for our daily lives

Social responsibility is important to us. We believe, making a difference is best achieved by taking responsibility in our daily lives, by letting actions speak louder than words. We work hard at running our business with integrity, honesty, and a solid dose of humility. And, where possible, we engage directly in ventures of positive impact.

We live in a complex world. There are problems to be solved. However, the most popular solutions may not be the right ones. While we can employ ESG tools in our investment process, we caution our clients to not expect too much from such a top-down, broad-brush approach.

I believe social responsibility begins with a strong, competitive company. Only a healthy enterprise can improve and enrich the lives of people and their communities.
