“When I first meet with a prospective client I explain that we have a philosophy that we believe in and over time has been proven to be the right investment strategy with the best results for the specific clientele we serve. Arbor Capital Management is not right for every client and every client is not always right for us. We’re conservative and what that means is that we believe in preserving a client’s wealth while focusing on prudent growth. If an investor is looking for highly aggressive strategy, Arbor Capital is not the place to be. We are not all things to all people and anyone who says they are, more times than not, are probably incorrect. If we agree there’s a fit then that potential client becomes a client and to us that means they are part of the Arbor Capital family and that is something we take very seriously.” ~Lawrence T. McGowan
