“You must trust and believe in people, or life becomes impossible”
We recognize that trust is fundamental to all aspects of our business and being trustworthy is vital to our very existence as an organization. We value the trust that is placed with us when clients take our advice and when capital partners co-invest with us.
We strive to enhance the essential trust that we have between all stakeholders by communicating openly, honestly, and regularly, being consistent in our practices and treating others as we would wish to be treated.
“We eat our own cooking”
We stand behind what we say and do. Integrity is based on being reliable, ensuring consistency between our words and deeds, and exhibiting principled behaviour. We only pursue mandates that are a fit for our expertise and capacity. We have a client-first ethos, therefore, the advice we give and the strategies we implement are the same as those that we adopt for ourselves and for our own capital — we advise others to do as we do.
“Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way”
Booker T. Washington
We strive continually for excellence in all that we do. We have a culture of continuous learning and improvement and firmly believe that the pursuit of excellence will lead naturally to success for our clients and stakeholders. We provide industry-leading service and our people are personally accountable for delivering and maintaining the highest quality results.
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”
Our team comprises exceptionally talented individuals, many of whom have been successful in some of the world’s largest corporations and institutions, but have been drawn to our smaller organization’s culture, which recognizes the importance of having close long-term relationships in achieving true success. We value the authentic personal and collaborative professional relationships with each other, our clients, capital partners, and our professional service partners.
“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance”
We live and breathe the entrepreneurial spirit and recognize how an entrepreneurial approach is often essential to achieving extraordinary results. We are both passionate about enhancing our clients’ and partners’ long term well-being and highly committed to the enterprise at-hand. We look to always make things better, have a realistic outlook while staying open to possibilities and opportunities, mitigate risk strategically, and above all, have a relentless drive for excellence in execution.
“We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.”
We are committed to a culture of collaboration and transparency in service of others. That’s how we best serve our clients.
The true measure of our success is defined beyond financial terms. Ultimately, we believe that the key in achieving individual and corporate significance in life and business is found in serving others. We respect each other, embrace diversity and encourage each other to be better at serving our clients and our community, in which we work and live.
“A promise is a promise”
My father, John Lang, lay dying from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. At his hospital bedside, I made a promise to him that I would “look after our family”. He died a few days later. I was 10 years old. That promise set me on a path to learn about business, investing, and finance to fulfill the promise I had made to my Dad.
As I 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.
As we have grown our own capital responsibly 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 Trust, Integrity, Excellence, Relationship, Entrepreneurship, and 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. Call us if there is any opportunity for us to be of service to you.
