As we quickly approach 2018, we are thankful for the past year at Venturi and hopeful for what is to come.
2017 was another great year for Venturi and our clients. Strong tailwinds from the financial markets and a resurgent global economy helped produce positive earnings momentum. Last year during the election season, we said that the direction of the economy was more important than the rhetoric of Washington politics and who was in the White House. The “wall of worry” and concerns about Washington have given way to a recovering economy in the U.S. and abroad.
We have a lot to be grateful for. Venturi was named to the Financial Times 2017 Top 300 Registered Investment Advisers shortly after celebrating our second anniversary. We are closing 2017 well over our goals for asset growth. We also moved into a new office space in October to allow for expansion and are expecting new additions to our team in the coming first quarter.
None of this would have been possible without our client relationships. We will never lose sight of the fact that we work for our clients first, and we are grateful to them for their trust in us.
Best wishes for a happy and prosperous new year from our Venturi team!
