“I have participated in several Corbin perception studies over the years. More recently, I've seen Corbin's influence as a consultant and advisor to some of the companies in which we have invested. Corbin knows these businesses well and I have been impressed by their clear and effective communication with the investment community. I think this is a winning proposition for all constituents.”  Portfolio Manager | Core Value Investment Advisor, $7B AUM
