On the benefits of specialization:
“Here, the people with the most sophistication and experience are the ones who are actually executing on accounts. We are not operating off of an economic model that pushes the work down to the most junior level; we don’t have any junior people. And we work with all of the media, every day, making the telephone calls, arranging the appointments, going to those appointments with you, and managing the follow-up. Our specialization in the asset management industry, and the fact that we know this business so well, is a big advantage for our clients.”
