What important financial lesson do you follow?

Remove emotion from the business analysis. Stay true to your economic and/or legal principles, regardless of how much time and sweat equity you have in the deal. Intellect over emotion has been a bedrock of who we are and what we do.

What is your definition of success?

We view success as having achieved long-term goals. Success is difficult without a foundational plan. We take great pride in our planning tactics and our ability to be nimble based on macro and micro circumstances. There is an age-old expression: “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” The aforementioned principles guide us as we look to create generational wealth for clients and their families. If we can navigate the economic and geopolitical currents to assist clients in achieving their goal of maintaining and increasing their net worth, we have accomplished what we set out to do.

How is your firm’s business model unique?

High net worth individuals and successful corporations turn to Marest Capital for financial guidance and planning due to the unique background of the principals who run our firm.

These attributes combined with an unmatched level of personal service give clients the confidence that they have chosen the right firm to help direct their futures.
