A Better Way Forward

The founders of Spruce knew there was a better way to deliver high-quality investment advice and solutions. They felt many advisors lacked objectivity, were too expensive, had a mediocre offer – or worse. They believe objectivity is critical to providing sound financial advice, and that having access to sophisticated and unique investment opportunities is necessary to achieve the results that investors require. It is this belief that led to the founding of Spruce.

Today, our vision is to help you achieve better results through better opportunities. To deliver on this vision, we remain unyielding in our quest for unique, hard to replicate investment strategies. We strive to create a culture of openness, curiosity, intellectual rigor, and creative problem solving. And, we continue to build a team composed of experts in their field who share this vision.
