In our marketing literature and on this website you will see pictures of polished stones, or pebbles. There is a reason for this which we will try to explain…
It is a subject of great debate for us where the idea for the stones originated. As the wise old lady once said ‘success has many parents, failure is an orphan’. Some say it was during one of our morning team meetings over bagels and black coffee, some say it was an old sapient phrase from the investment management industry, some are not worried about the origin and just want to get on with it.
What we all agree on though, is what it means to us…The theory goes something like this: ‘For every 10 stones we turn over we find a gem under one, if we turn over 100 we will find 10. The winner of this game is the person who turns over the most stones.’
The Stones represent all the things we have thought about for our clients. The black ones are the things we have dismissed. The white one is the ‘thing’ that is most appropriate for each particular client, and every client has a different stone. Simple?
We are proud to think that we study more research, attend more meetings, read more books, communicate more with our clients, take more exams, argue and agree, love and laugh, smile and frown more than any other business you will ever engage with, whatever you may ask them to do for you.
The Stones are what makes Armstrong Private Wealth Management different.
It is what we do.
