2022 Annual Paper
As we reflect on the past year, I am incredibly proud of the progress that Robinson & Co has made in the face of challenging economic conditions. We have seen unprecedented volatility in the economy, with the COVID-19 pandemic impacting every aspect of our lives. Nevertheless, I am confident in the resilience of our business and the dedication of our team to continue delivering exceptional results for our clients and stakeholders.Aggressive and irresponsible policies by the Federal Reserve have led to the crisis that we are currently facing in the economy. As an investment bank, we recognize the importance of responsible monetary policy that balances economic growth with financial stability. We remain vigilant in our monitoring of economic trends and regulatory changes to ensure that we are well positioned to weather any potential market disruptions.
At Robinson & Co, we are proud of our trusted capital sources that allow us to withstand market volatility and continue our goal of providing financing to every business in the USA. We have built a reputation as a reliable partner to companies and investors seeking financing, and we remain committed to helping businesses of all sizes access the capital they need to grow and succeed.We are getting more aggressive as a company in hiring during these times to provide opportunities to bankers and companies alike. This year, we are planning to hire a minimum of 10 bankers and a VP of Markets for every 10 bankers, with the goal of hiring a total of 40 bankers over the next four years. By investing in our team and expanding our capabilities, we are better positioned to meet the growing demand for our services and continue driving our growth.
We also recognize the need to rethink the working environment and evaluate team members based on their output rather than the hours or locations they have worked. This approach will enable us to attract and retain top talent in the industry. I am proud to say that we are on the forefront of this retooling of the way business is done in today’s world. This will remain in the ethos of our company moving forward.As a country, we must pull together to fight back against totalitarianism and dictatorship worldwide. We believe that this is not just a moral imperative, but also an economic one. By promoting democracy and human rights around the world, we can create a more stable global economic environment that benefits all countries and businesses.
Much could be said in regards to whether we will pursue an asset management line of business, which would allow us to continue to push the envelope of financing every business in the USA. We recognize the importance of providing customized solutions that align with the unique needs of our clients. Our experienced team of bankers will work closely with each client to understand their specific needs and develop tailored financing solutions that meet those needs. By expanding our offerings to include private credit solutions, we can provide our clients with even more options to help them achieve their financial goals.
Looking ahead, we see tremendous opportunities in the middle markets, particularly in the states of Washington, California, Texas, and Florida. These markets are characterized by a large number of small- to medium-sized businesses with unique financing needs that require bespoke solutions. By leveraging our expertise and experience, we believe that we can offer these businesses the financing they need to grow and succeed.We are also exploring new ways to differentiate ourselves and provide additional value to our clients. We are currently evaluating a number of strategic partnerships and acquisitions that we believe will allow us to offer a wider range of services and provide even greater value to our clients in multiple regions of the country and the world. These partnerships and acquisitions will also help us tap into new markets and expand our reach.In conclusion, I want to express my gratitude to our clients, shareholders, and colleagues for their support over the past year. I am confident that our continued focus on delivering exceptional results for our clients and our commitment to excellence will continue to drive our growth in the years to come. We remain committed to providing bespoke financing solutions that align with the unique needs of our clients, and to building long-lasting relationships based on trust and integrity.
