A practice based on core values
Established in 2002, LongView grew out of its founders' common values and shared approach to investments and client service. Our portfolio managers come from a background of institutional finance, but have chosen to devote themselves to a practice centered on individual relationships. From its beginning, our company has been grounded in ideals of transparency, discipline and attention to our clients’ individual needs.
Between us we bring decades of experience to bear on our daily jobs as investment advisors as well as a global perspective gained from years of working in the world’s major financial centers.
Though we have clients around the country and travel frequently, we call New Mexico home. Santa Fe offers us an inspiring natural environment as well as a fascinating and diverse culture and history. We are active participants in our community and serve as volunteers, board and committee members to a range of non-profit, charitable and faith-based organizations.
