The Great Wisdom of Sam Zell

Mission Statement

  • We try to decipher the complexity of the world and simplify it.
  • We try to understand the direction technology and disruption are heading.
  • We look for an extreme consensus to take a contrarian position to. We enjoy and thrive in change, especially secular change.
  • We look for anomalies—what should be happening and isn’t or what isn’t and should be — because they are helpful in predicting the future.
  • We interpret agnostically what the markets are telling us. Our favorite mantra: “It’s your biases that kill you.”
  • We search for the best cutting-edge health treatments and technologies to share with others.
  • We tell truth to power. Our goal is to raise human consciousness.
  • We study cycles and the lessons of history as applied to the present. History repeats because human nature hasn’t changed.
  • We read extensively because knowledge is a competitive advantage and we want to share it.
  • We study investors’ last profound trauma because it will impact how they behave in the future.
  • We try to spread compassion and empathy. Compassion is good for business. Our greatest joy comes when we hear a client write “you have made me a better person, a better parent and a better spouse.”
  • We aim to be an inspirational voice in the world. William Faulker’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech is one of our mantras. “I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet’s, the writer's, duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet's voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail.”
