As a firm, and as individuals, we spend our days and nights working on the future, reimagining how money flows through the world. This week, however, we cannot help but pause and reflect on the current events unfolding across the U.S. The consequences of fracturing racism that has captured global attention over the last 10 days have weighed heavily on our minds.
In contrast, we are uplifted by the multiple signs of peaceful protest, generosity, companionship, and empathy that we see reported across the country, and the world, and we support it wholeheartedly.
In short, we stand with those who peacefully and persistently put themselves forward for a better future for all.
