We believe clients’ interests are best achieved when dealing with principals rather than agents. As principals, we view relationships as investments and transactions as expenses. We are deeply committed to our independence and as owner-operators act with discernment, care and diligence. As investors we are open-minded, curious, and innovative thinkers who evaluate businesses in terms of their enduring qualities, thus enabling us to make sound judgments about their true value regardless of their quoted prices. Our culture is one that is rooted in building and sustaining strong, trusting and enduring relationships, with clients, and with each other. Trust, respect, humility and excellence are embodied in the Manitou spirit, which aligns our priorities with: ‘client, team, self’.
