Our raison d'etre is to always put our clients' interests first. Our experience shows that if we serve our clients well, our own success will follow. Our assets include our people, capital and reputation. If any of these are ever diminished, the last is the most difficult to restore. We are dedicated to complying fully with the letter and spirit of the laws, rules and ethical principles that govern us. Our continued success depends upon unwavering adherence to this standard.

We take great pride in the professional quality of our work. We have an uncompromising determination to achieve excellence in everything we undertake. We stress creativity and imagination in everything we do, while recognizing that the old way may still be the best way. We constantly strive to find better solution's for a client.

Our dedication to the firm and the intense effort we give our job is greater than one finds in most other organizations. We consider our size an asset. We want to be big enough to undertake the largest project that any of our clients could contemplate, yet small enough to maintain the loyalty, intimacy and esprit de corps we all treasure and contribute greatly to our success. We constantly strive to anticipate the rapidly changing needs of our clients and to develop new services to meet those needs. We know that the world of finance will not stand still and that complacency can lead to extinction.

We regularly receive confidential information as part of our normal client relationships. To breach a confidence or to use confidential information improperly or carelessly would be unthinkable. Integrity and honesty are at the heart of our business. We expect to maintain high ethical standards in everything we do, both in our work for the firm and in our personal lives.
