‘We founded Fairview to bridge the gap between institutional sources of capital and exceptionally capable investment professionals who could deploy those resources profitably in environments that support a broad spectrum of entrepreneurs. To spark true change, we create opportunities for as many gifted people as we possibly can. One can't ignore any repositories of talent if we’re going to build the kind of society that we all say we want. We don't care about your packaging or what you look like. We’re looking for the quality of your mind and character and the impact you ignite with those tools. That’s what matters for the future. Already, the next generation of Fairview leaders is building on this strong foundation, standing on our shoulders with the ability to see farther and higher.’
