Our People

Syntrinsic’s people have a distinctive blend of investment experience, technical expertise, and heart for service. We value intellectual rigor, hard work and creative problem-solving skills. We collaborate intensely with each other and with our clients; thus, we must be as good at listening as we are at articulating, and as candid in our questioning as we are in providing answers.

As our firm has grown, we have placed tremendous emphasis on identifying people who are willing and able to grow in their professional capacity, to become more valuable to our firm and thus to our clients by developing their knowledge base, honing their skills, and taking on increased responsibilities as appropriate. Like most of our clients, we are committed to personal and communal growth.
