Our Firm

Partnerships of Trust

“At Colony, we build personal relationships rooted in trust. Our clients count on our steady hand day in and day out, through major market events and life transitions.”

Core Values

All of the Atlantic Investment companies share the same core values, which guide us in all of our decisions and relationships. Conduct our business with integrity — we work hard to be true to ourselves, our clients, and our shareholders in all situations. Treat everyone with respect and fairness — we respect the inherent value of every person. Be prudent and focused — we are careful and deliberate in all that we do. Live balanced lives — we use our influence to strengthen the families of our clients, colleagues, and partners.


We are proud of our relationship-oriented culture — it’s personal, face-to-face, and authentic. We believe this is very important in a world in which investments and investment advice are commodities.


Individuals, families, and foundations trust us because of our core values, culture, and “invest together” philosophy. They also align strategically with our old-fashioned approach.
