Practice Perfect Ethics
We want to profit—the right way! While as a business our primary focus is making money, we want to make sure that it doesn’t come at the cost of any ethical violations or missteps. We pride ourselves on our culture of compliance and employee participation in the strong ethical standing of our organization.
A critical component to our success at LJM is our ability to produce positive long-term returns for our clients. We believe in the long-term viability of our strategy, and in its ability to profit in (up or down) orderly or flat markets, which ultimately can provide our clients’ portfolios with a consistent return generator.
As a small firm, it is imperative that each one of LJM’s employees and business partners holds each other accountable in order to deliver the best service to the end client. We hold each other to high standards, because we aim to be best of breed in the industry.
LJM also engages outside business consultants and we regularly attend industry conferences relating to all functional units of the organization to stay abreast of current market trends and changing regulations.
Create Positive Experiences
At LJM we want to create an environment that our employees can thrive in every day. We regularly make investments in the professional and personal growth of all of our employees. Continuing to cultivate this growth, as well as the physical and mental well-being of our employees, helps to strengthen our growing team of financial professionals.
LJM also believes in creating positive experiences for all of our business partners and clients. We work on building strong professional relationships that go beyond traditional vendor and client interaction.
We regularly participate in company events, outings, and team building exercises that contribute to our collaborative office culture. Building strong bonds both in and outside of the office creates an optimal environment for success.
At LJM, we believe that people are our greatest asset. We recognize our success is tied to the strength of our communities. That’s why “giving back” is one of the six main tenets of our company and deeply ingrained in our corporate culture.
LJM’s current focus is on partnering with organizations that support education through mentoring, financial literacy, and other resources. We believe that quality educational opportunities and resources should be available to all children. Focusing on educational volunteer opportunities also allows LJM employees to leverage their knowledge and skills to make a meaningful difference in our communities.
