Thank you for your interest in A Street Investments. We are a provider of investment management services to individuals and families. When I left the institutional investment world in 2009, I was approached by a number of friends and family to manage their savings alongside my own. I decided to make this a formal business that would also take in clients from outside my immediate circle. It is important to me that A Street is structured as an independent investment management business, avoiding the common conflicts of interest that must be managed by advisors or brokers who work with banks, insurance companies, or any large financial institution.
As background, I spent 14 years at Russell Investments and Silver Creek Capital, through that experience developing my investment philosophy. It was a wonderful experience. I led the sales and service efforts at various times for all of North America. I played key roles in launching two of Russell’s most profitable services that combined contributed more than $100 million annually to Russell’s top line. The one consistent focus of mine over those 14 years was working closely with institutional investors, who are billion dollar and up pools of capital. I covered clients all over the US and Canada. You would recognize many of the corporate names. My goal for A Street is to bring institutional investment disciplines to our individual clients. I have a very unique combination of experience and knowledge, very different from the advisory community.
