Choosing an investment partner is the most important decision a company and its shareholders make. The right partner should bring broad intelligence, energy, and integrity to play a positive and valuable role. Blackland Group, LLC believes that of those 3 characteristics, integrity should always be the overriding force in all decisions. If it is not, the other 2, intelligence and energy, can kill you.
