At the heart of Cornerstone Capital Management is a talented team of financial analysts. Due to years of experience, daily interactions with the industry participants within an economic sector, and daily discussions with the investment management team, each analyst gains valuable insights into the secular and cyclical forces at work within a given industry. Such insights form the basis for detailed financial modeling of companies targeted for investment. Through an ongoing iterative process, financial models are refined and the key metrics which drive the financial statements are identified. Investment recommendations are then based on where our proprietary research identifies one or more perception gaps in those key metrics.
Surrounding Cornerstone’s team of analysts is a dedicated team of professional operations, I.T., sales, and support people who ensure that the trading and management of our clients’ accounts are done in an accurate, secure, and efficient manner at all times and in all market conditions.
