HONEST

Investment Line

We believe that integrity is the indispensable quality upon which all other values must stand. This belief precedes our determination to conduct business the right way in every transaction and interaction. We avoid pressure to practice earnings management to show positive or consistent returns. This may lead to large, short-term fluctuations in our financials; however, our focus remains on actual results. If we falter from an unnecessary mistake, we will confront the issue and move on; however, if we discover an integrity error, we will be tireless to resolve our mistake or ruthless to prosecute those responsible. We do business “out in the open” and are not afraid to defend our intentions, objectives, and most of all, reputation.

 INDUSTRIOUS

Investment Line

Our formula for success is simple: We are industrious. We are unceasingly persistent, hardworking, and in pursuit of intellectual growth.

However simple this may seem, we believe that hard work is the foundation for all sound investments. We will work through the night and sometimes go to incredible lengths to verify new ventures and eliminate risk. We also realize that there are many who work hard but few who succeed.  We earnestly believe that continuous education is the other critical piece essential to success. With any investment, there is risk. With extreme effort, there is less.          

 DISPASSIONATELY OBJECTIVE

Investment Line

We understand our natural tendencies can be emotional and irrational, and we know that this is the catalyst behind many company failures. By implementing proven processes and procedures, we are able to remain dispassionately objective when it comes to issues where emotion can cloud our vision.

EXTREMELY FOCUSED

Investment Line

We are committed to only entering into investments in which we have a strong competitive advantage. Many companies fail to “stick with what they understand and let their abilities, not their egos, determine what they attempt.”[1] If we only pursue the ventures that we can be the absolute best at, the risk of failure is greatly decreased. In this practice, some great opportunities may be missed; however, greater mistakes can be avoided. This also may lead us to turn down investors desiring to contribute capital. We must remain realistic about the amount and types of investments we can manage. Our goal is to achieve above average return on equity.
