I’m thrilled to have been able to take my broad experience in the industry and to use it in further developing an investment philosophy and platform that really resonates with the types of clients that are drawn to the firm. Having deployed aggressive defensive measures during the most prolific bear market of our generation, it was gratifying to hear the collective ’sigh of relief’ from our clients.
