Investing needn’t be stuck in the past
The model that has long defined our roles as financial advisors wasn’t necessarily created in the interest of the investor; in many cases it is the banks that serve to profit most from the transaction. If you have dealt with the finance industry—as an advisor or client— this is probably not news to you.
Many financial advisors feel they have little choice except to adapt to the current system, and they are not happy about it. We are among them. Yet despite this brewing discontent, the system is unlikely to improve without new approaches and practices that align with the long-term interests of investors. It’s up to us, the disrupters, to bring the change we want to see.
Build a new model that makes the existing one obsolete.

Integrity in Finance
We are firm believers that integrity has enormous economic implications for value, productivity, and quality of life. Integrity should not be considered a virtue, but a necessary condition for performance. When we communicate to each other, our clients, our friends and our families, our word is who we are and everything we stand for.
In the context of integrity in finance, our word goes far beyond professionalism and ethics. It’s never a matter of some cost-benefit analysis. We believe honoring our word is the first step in fulfilling our true purpose as individuals.
