JPL investment objective is to find a stand-alone firm with a veteran management team that has demonstrated historical success. Our belief is that this foundation will support a long-term horizon with a strategic commitment to future goals. There must be a disciplined execution and continual improvement of core competencies, strengthening of customer relations, and the enhancement of assets. It is our philosophy that the people within the firm are the single most important elements in carrying out such a strategy. Therefore, we believe that we must treat individuals with the same principles of loyalty, trust, motivation, and a long-term relationship. This is fundamental to how we have been successful in the past and how we plan to be successful in the future.
