My Native Admission Statement: What do I do? I’m a plumber – in a metaphysical sense. I help clients solve their challenges in their portfolios. This ranges to everything from providing valuation opinions on current or planned assets, performing due diligence on targeted acquisitions, linking clients with much-needed customers or capital, and helping formulate and execute strategies to win big in the market.
Inspiration for the business idea, and your vision for the Business?:
I spend a lot of time in Asia, up to 10-months per year. When we started 375 Park Associates, we started with a simple question. ‘What does Asia need?’ The answer, at least for us, was access to better healthcare, energy security, and water security. This could be achieved by connecting disruptive technology companies in the U.S. and Europe with customers and capital from Asia. My future desire for 375 Park Associates? Actually, I just like solving problems. Be it helping a client to value a dynamic investment portfolio, to formulating a winning strategy. The satisfaction of solving problems for my clients (for a charge of course) and riding my bike in every country I go to is about as good as it gets.
