We started the firm in 1999 with a simple yet powerful idea: We can help executives of major corporations to manage their businesses more effectively by combining innovations in investment management with developments in the emerging field of strategic management.

We jointly defined performance means, such as economic profit and warranted equity value, which incorporated a charge for the capital employed in the business. We called this new approach "Dare to be Different" It was a big idea and a great platform for developing business through the early 2000's.
