In 2013, we founded Walnut Green with a wealth management strategy intended for taxable accounts owned by high net worth individuals. We believe that the best way to make money is to keep fees and taxes as low as possible. Our goal is to buy great businesses at fair prices and hold on to them.  In addition to being tax efficient, this is important because we think that we are more likely to succeed by predicting the future success of strong, profitable, well-financed businesses than to attempt to time market prices.
