When I think of good stewardship it’s the kind of treatment I would want my closest family and friends to have. Taken care of from beginning to end, full transparency, informed of all the pro’s/con’s and most importantly the finer details they didn’t think to ask. It sums up how we approach investor relationships: seeking to educate/inform investors all about their options and even suggesting they explore a route without Realized if that’s their best option. In the long run this kind of stewardship always pays off.
