Francis Fukuyama - Trust: The Social Virtues and the Creation of Prosperity.

Integrityfirm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values.

Our relationships are based on Trust, Integrity, and Ingenuity.

These were our values when we founded our firm in 1994 – and stand even stronger today.

We emphasize objectivity, intellectual independence, fairness, confidentiality, and close working relationships.

In our experience, unrelenting analytics, attention to detail, frankness, and the forging of personal goodwill unequivocally provide the best results for our clients.

By living in a region that still faces many social and economic challenges, we elect to be discreet, both in our business affairs and our personal activities.

We enjoy being a catalyst of change within our community.

We choose to work exclusively with clients and associates who share our values.
