Our Values

Integrity.

Determine what's right and stand up for it, even when it's not easy to do so.

Fidelity.

Help others become successful. Supporting one another is at the core of how we build successful teams and lasting partnerships.

Confidence.

Attitude is contagious. Improvement is always possible – this mindset is what helps us continue to grow great businesses.

Initiative.

Do more, talk less. It's better to risk failing than not to try at all.

Creativity.

We are open-minded and driven by intellectual curiosity. Our desire to re-examine and re-invent is the cornerstone of innovation.

Clarity.

Rational, objective discussion and clear communication mitigates groupthink and leads to better decision outcomes.

Kingfish Philosophy

Our philosophy is to find the best people and give them the freedom to learn, innovate and outperform.

We are structured to ensure that each individual contributes substantively to firm strategy and goals. Authority is decentralized and performance is rewarded based on achievement.
