From a client, shareholder or employee perspective, the most important question in considering Greenhill is whether we can continue to attract and retain the best people in our business on a global basis. There are many reasons why we are confident that will be the case.
Our people take pride in their work. They are trusted advisors to their clients, as opposed to salespeople trying to sell multiple products.
Ours is a collegial culture, with everyone united by the common goal of winning and retaining clients by providing insightful advice and successfully executing transactions.
Ours is a stable business. There are no regulatory threats to the business we have built or threats from misalignment of incentives driving different segments or our business in different directions. We have also avoided the repetitive overexpansion and then contraction cycle that is evidenced in the history of our larger competitors.
Ours has been a growing business since our founding in 1996, and it remains so today.
