A Promise is a PromiseTM

As my father, John Lang was dying from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in a hospital bed in Vancouver’s Shaughnessy Hospital, I made a promise to him that I would “look after our family”. He died a few days after I made that promise. I was 10 years old.

That promise set me on a path to learn about business, investing and finance as a way of fulfilling the promise I had made to my Dad.

Over decades, with the help and support of my family and being graced with many opportunities to learn from a number of people over a wide range of ventures and investments – mostly successful, a few unsuccessful – I was able to keep that promise. As I have met and partnered with various individuals, all of whom are generally more capable than I in the specific disciplines that they specialize in, but more importantly, who share a common set of core values and a shared commitment to keeping promises, we formed Promerita Group as a better way to share our expertise, serve more people, and to build a business that has an expanded scope of purpose.

At Promerita Group, we want to help you keep the most important promises in your life.

We strive to manage our own capital responsibly. Thus, over the years, we have developed a range of effective capital management strategies and actively cultivated a powerful network of relationships that gives us access to exceptional private investment opportunities over a broad range of industries allowing us to benefit from better risk adjusted investment returns.

We connect people, capital and opportunity. We understand the power of partnership and conduct our business with the underlying belief that collaboration between people who are truly committed to the values of TrustworthyIntegrity, Excellence, Relationship, Entrepreneurial & Service leads to outstanding results in business, finances and life. We treasure the trust that our clients and investment partners place with us whenever they take our advice or invest their own capital alongside ours.

We believe that our approach to business not only results in improved risk-adjusted financial returns on capital, but will better serve the long term well being of our clients, employees, partners and the overall community in which we operate. We believe that we have a responsibility to care for each other, serve our community and be good stewards of the world in which we are all sharing.

Thank you for your interest in our group and for visiting our website. We look forward to any opportunity to be of service to you.
