Investment, while a singular action, does not have a singular approach and encompasses many nuances. KITE Invest draws upon the perspectives of leading decision makers, economic and business front-runners, and figures throughout history to showcase the various interpretations and declarations of investment, as well as, projections of mindfulness inherent for the future.
KITE finds that the root of interaction, whether it be in a financial investment or not, derives from the individual. Education is an essential pillar in all capacities of life, and as one of the first progressive thinkers, Benjamin Franklin aptly recognized this strength and essentially the necessity for strong human capital.
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
- Benjamin Franklin
As the world’s economic standing ebbs and flows with time, KITE recognizes that it is hard not to look back at past experiences or occurrences when thinking about potential investments of today; however, as John Paulson observes, an investment should only be addressed and conducted when looking forward.
You can’t think about the past. You have to think about the future. - John Paulson
Determination and patience are held closely to KITE’s aspirations as a business and in dealings with our clients. We recognize, as Robert Arnott attests, that hard work pays off.
In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable.
- Robert Arnott
Foreign Direct Investment, while at times profit-focused, must maintain a human face. KITE distinguishes that investment is an inherent piece in the creation of economic growth, and ultimately, as Christine Lagarde notes, it should be a service for the greater good.
The financial industry is a service industry. It should serve others before it serves itself.
- Christine Lagarde
The true backbone of KITE’s vision rests on the need for communication, without it a person or a place is unable to deliver who and what they are. KITE holds firmly that communication is not only a way to transmit accurate perception and image, but also as Bill Gate avows, it is essential to ensuring the passing of knowledge and the freedom that comes with that.
I’m a great believer that any tool that enhances communication has profound effects in terms of how people can learn from each other, and how they can achieve the kind of freedoms that they’re interested in.
- Bill Gates
Foreign Direct Investment is not only the result of globalization, but it is also deepening it. In this regard, KITE is in full agreement with Angela Merkel’s stance that more good than bad can occur from an ever increasingly globalized world.
I’m convinced that the essence of globalization today provides the world with many more opportunities than risks.
- Angela Merkel
