Quote

The process of working with Independence has been genuinely insightful. We have made great strides in a short period of time and I have been encouraged by both the quality of assets we have found as much as I have been by the commitment and ingenuity evident in reaching solutions to complex problems. I am pleased to have found a genuine business partner who I look forward to working with as we develop the group.
