Culture of Empowerment

At Cambiar, the same attributes that drive our approach to investing also define our culture. We are entrepreneurial and forward thinking. We set a high bar for ourselves and for one another. And we continuously evolve while maintaining a steadfast commitment to the clients we serve.

 

Cambiar is a meritocracy, which means that every single member of our team has the opportunity to thrive in our vibrant, collaborative environment. Although Cambiar has grown significantly over the years, the principles we embrace and characteristics we value have not changed since we first opened our doors nearly five decades ago.

NEW CHALLENGES

We are always looking for opportunities to make a positive effect on our firm and our clients.  We routinely ask questions about how we can improve.  Our intellectual curiosity encourages us to initiate new projects and learn new skills along the way.  This open-minded approach to work helps us to develop professionally and build the satisfaction that comes with making a real impact.

Christine Simon

If I see something that needs to be done or improved, I can grab a team of people and start working on it.  I love that we can challenge ourselves.

Christine Simon Executive Director - Compliance and Operations Member of the Cambiar team since 2000

ENTREPRENEURIAL ENVIRONMENT

Everyone at Cambiar is free – and encouraged – to offer an opinion, regardless of role or seniority. For over 45 years, Cambiar has been an unwavering active investor, and our respectful yet spirited sharing of ideas informs our unique point of view.

The end result? Our culture of inclusion drives our growth and the benefits we deliver to clients.

Nancy Wigton

We know our opinions are valued – people feel like they can express themselves here. We don’t just want the status quo; we need people to ask hard questions that make people think.

Nancy Wigton Executive Director - Sales & Marketing Member of the Cambiar team since 1994

STRIKING THE RIGHT BALANCE

We not only share a passion for doing well for our clients, but we also care deeply about making the most of our lives outside of the office. We have a passion for fitness, with more than a few running and cycling enthusiasts on our team. We also all feel the push-pull between work and other commitments and have found our firm’s answer to be somewhat unique. We always strive to deliver high-quality work, yet there is an underlying understanding that sometimes a child gets sick or there’s a dentist appointment that just can’t wait. The environment at Cambiar gives us the freedom to do our best work and allows us to strike our own personal healthy balance.

Jennifer Dunne, CFA

Our team honors the fact that we must be rowing the oars to get the firm to move forward, and the firm honors the fact that we have families that need to be cared for.

Jennifer Dunne, CFA Investment Principal Member of the Cambiar team since 2005

A FIRM-AND COLLEAGUES-FOR THE LONG TERM

As for the firm, Cambiar continues to grow and remains one of Colorado’s largest and longest-running asset management firms. Many members of the team have been with Cambiar for over a decade, and average tenure at the firm is 15 years. While there is no single reason why our team members tend to join and stay at Cambiar, we are certain our culture – and the ability to build a rewarding career with us – is an important element of our success.

Rod Hostetler

We look for solid, quality employees with upside potential to be with and grow with the firm for a long time, similarly to how we build our portfolios.
