Company Visit --- Sands Capital

May 5th Thursday, the team had a luch meeting with Degelis, Perry and Davis from Sands Capital Management in their office at Arlington, VA.  Sands Capital is an independent investment management firm focused exclusively on portfolios of high quality growth companies.  Their clients include corporate pension plans, public plans, endowments, foundations, mutual funds, Taft-Hartley plans, family offices, and individuals.
We talked with analyst, associate and protfolio manager.  The topics ranged from Sands' unique investment philosophy to some random chat about an eduational institute in China.  Sands are pretty interested in what we're doing right now.  They agreed that what one learns from textbook will not qualify him to conqure the real market.  That's exactly why we started our team and try to learn as much as possible about the real world before graduation!
The meeting was informative and friendly.  We both enhanced our relationship and looked forward to further conversations.  The team will soon head to NYC to visit two more companies.  Please check our blog for more information.
