Values and Principles

Values

From its inception, CCM has operated according to a set of core values that inform how we work with our colleagues, our partners and our communities. Our values are at the heart of what we do, how we act and who we are, as both an organization and as a collection of unique individuals. Every day, our behaviors, decisions and actions embody the following values:

  • Collaboration and Teamwork
  • Honesty and Integrity
  • Respect and Humility
  • Superior Communication
  • Commitment to Philanthropy

As an embodiment of our values, a portion of the profits generated by CCM Group’s investment activities go to fund the Flamboyan Foundation, a private family foundation focused on improving educational outcomes for children in public schools in Washington, DC and Puerto Rico.
