We are a firm of stockbrokers united by our belief in growth investing for the long term. We each have different ways of analyzing companies and managing client accounts, but we work together to tap the group's diversity of ideas and opinions.
Although we share information, we often don't invest in the same stocks or at the same time. In fact, we occasionally find ourselves on opposite sides of a security.
While each broker is responsible for his or her own investment decisions, we are aided by our analyst colleagues who scour the market for growth opportunities; our account managers who help execute our investment programs and help clients; and our traders who connect us to the markets.
GGHC is member of NYSE Euronext, FINRA and SIPC and is a SEC Registered Investment Adviser.
The tech and market excitement grows, and clients pour into GGHC. Most brokers at GGHC end 1999 with triple digit gains. We are up to 70 employees and have $11 billion under management.
On a clear morning of September 11th 2001 America receives a shocking blow. The markets close for the week and reopen the following Monday, down hard. The Fed cuts rates to lows not seen since the 1950s. The country and its economy, however, are resilient. By year-end, markets are recovering, and GGHC has about $4 billion under management and about 90 employees.
The credit crisis of 2008 claims established financial institutions. Bear Stearns, our clearing partner, is acquired by JP Morgan. Lehman falls. Other banks take government financing to maintain the faith of their depositors. We emerge with $4.5b in assets, 84 employees, and an intact belief in entrepreneurship.
