With her investment skills and experience any investment shop would want Melanie on their team. However, her personality and team orientation make her the ideal addition to our culture.

I am excited and feel privileged to be joining the 18 AM team. I share the conviction in the culture that 18 AM has cultivated, as well as in the investment philosophy. I very much admire the values that have inspired the company’s vision, and look forward to contributing to the execution of that vision.
