“As Chief Investment officer for Arbor Capital Management when investing our clients’ money and managing their portfolios we always remain clear of mind with passion and purpose, not emotion. Passion Jerry-Bio-2-copydrives action, purpose keeps us focused while emotion only creates confusion. Managing client portfolios is all about making investment decisions based on our experience, proven methods, and deductive reasoning. Years of experience and concentrated study have clearly demonstrated to me that opportunities are often borne in the most negative climates.” ~ Gerald T. Cole
