Experience

At CornerStone, we believe broad experience shapes our judgment and insights on each client’s behalf. We know firsthand the roles of investors, chief investment officers, investment managers, and analysts. We have served in these roles during our individual careers and, as current and former trustees and board members, we understand the investment challenges our clients face as well as the fiduciary responsibilities they shoulder. We not only appreciate their expectations, we appreciate them from their perspective.

Our combined expertise covers every aspect of investment management and every asset class. We look around the globe for the best investment opportunities as well as those exceptional investment managers who are the best fit for each client’s portfolio. And, as with all decisions we make on a client’s behalf, we take nothing for granted. We regularly challenge our assumptions through intensive research and analysis. We continually seek to refine our judgment and further sharpen our perspective.

Our team of talented and experienced investors blends unique viewpoints and years of experience to ensure that non-consensus thinking remains the norm. Each CornerStone client receives the full benefit of the whole team’s collective experience, insights, and judgment.
