With eye on the future, investment firm marks the past
August 1, 2019
Renowned investor Warren Buffett once said, “Time is the friend of the wonderful company, the enemy of the mediocre.”
Don Gould would agree.
Mr. Gould founded Gould Asset Management, a fixture in the Village for two decades, in 1999. His underlying philosophy is much like Mr. Buffet’s: investing is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
“First, we are inherently on the conservative side of the middle when it comes to risk,” Mr. Gould said. “And we continually remind our clients that money takes decades to accumulate, and if not managed properly, can be dissipated much more quickly.”
That philosophy has helped GAM reach an admirable milestone for any business: its 20th anniversary. The firm paused this week to celebrate with a client mixer at its Village offices.
