At JDC, we have achieved momentum across our business because we have built a culture where our people come together as a team to
deliver all of the firm’s resources to our customers. Our firm has come a long way by many measures. One of the greatest changes is in the
wide variety of perspectives and backgrounds of our people today. We always strive to make substantial progress in recruiting and developing
our people, creating a diverse and inclusive culture and establishing ourselves as leaders in the community.
To reach our next level of success, we must continue to foster a culture that is full of opportunity, where exceptional staff want to build their
careers and our commitment for a truly diverse and inclusive culture and to ensure that all employees are valued for their unique abilities
and contributions and their diversity of thought and perspective.
There are remarkable opportunities for us to take this Firm to its next level of success. I am confident that the staff here at this firm
and those who will join us in the time ahead will help us further build on that success.
