All Cordant team members strive to live our core values every day. These values are so much more than clichés—they are the foundation of our company. We live, breathe, and believe in our core principles. Every decision we make aligns with our values and supports the company’s core focus—to help clients get more out of life by aligning wealth with purpose. Our values are to:

Act with purpose: Every decision we make starts with a clear purpose, objective, and end goal. We prioritize this holistic perspective before making any decision—so that when we execute, it is with an eye on the big picture. Am I driving in the direction of the mission?

Make an impact: We value making an impact in the lives of our clients and the world in general. This means continually looking for ways to leave a positive mark and get the result (not simply checking the box). Whose life did I improve today?

Continuously Improve: We believe it’s a conscious, deliberate decision to focus on getting better. Sometimes that requires taking risks and being courageous. Above all, it takes curiosity as there’s always more to learn. What did I do today to make myself better than I was yesterday?

Be a healthy team: At Cordant, we know the importance of collaboration—and we take responsibility for maintaining a healthy team environment. We trust each other and make each other better. Open and honest communication is a must. How did I make the team stronger today?
