Year End Letter
December 31, 2020
When we launched Jackson Square Capital in March of 2019, we knew we had a lot of work ahead of us. With your help, we are proud of the way that we’ve reorganized the way we work with clients, moving from a model that was opaque and bureaucratic to one that is transparent and client-centered. We also welcomed the challenge of integrating new systems into our practice, which have supercharged our ability to manage to each client on the individual level even while assets under management grow. At every juncture we ask ourselves how we can serve our clients better. Every challenge or ‘growing pain’ has helped to create the firm we are so very proud of today.
2020 has been challenging in its own way, and on a global scale. The pandemic, the emotional toll of extended lockdowns and the deep social and political unrest in our country have contributed to intense and pervasive feelings of uncertainty–and will likely continue to influence life as we know it for years.
In spite of the challenges of 2020, markets and the economy proved resilient. It was an impressive year in which client accounts in our growth strategy leaped over the performance of their benchmark and the S&P 500. It was a year in which we deepened the planning advice we offer to clients in order to extend the positive impact we can have on clients’ overall financial life.
As we look ahead to 2021, we aim to continue to provide consistent returns and thoughtful advice to clients. We’ll maintain the transparency Jackson Square Capital was built on and will look to become even more accessible to our clients, through further technology upgrades.
At the end of the day, your financial success is our top priority. Thank you for an outstanding year.
