Our Business Values and Culture
We established the firm predicated on a set of core business principles and cultural priorities that have served us well for the last eighteen years. Our core concept is to “take the high road." Our previous experience has taught us to understand and respect what investors expect from investment managers managing multi-manager portfolios. Therefore, we strive to align the interests between ECM and our investors as well as between our portfolios and their underlying managers. Accordingly, we have invested significant capital alongside our investors.
In 2003 we defined the attributes of ECM’s culture and the essence of our identity in the marketplace and community. We share these attributes with all personnel and include it in our quarterly board meeting materials to reinforce the culture we strive to perpetuate.
