Steadyhand opened its doors to investors five years ago tomorrow. Since that bright spring day in April 2007, we’ve witnessed a lot – the biggest stock market decline since the Great Depression, a collapse in the U.S. housing market, derivatives gone wild, a global debt crisis, a strong market rebound, record low interest rates, investor paralysis, political revolution ... and more. It’s been an eventful period. And it’s what we live for. Investors need a steady hand on their portfolio now more than ever.

To mark our 5th anniversary, we’re publishing a series of five articles that take you inside our company and industry and touch on some of the principles and happenings that have shaped our business. The first of the series will be posted tomorrow, with a new entry each week. We hope you enjoy this peek inside the tent.
