About Vinson

Spending five years in the 1990’s post-Soviet Union was a remarkable first travel experience. While navigating my own after-college transition, I watched mindsets, businesses—entire societies—in Eastern Europe shift around me. It led me to appreciate the virtues of capitalism, but also its limits. This bolstered my enthusiasm and the realism I would bring to bear in a career in global investing. The world continues to change, and I welcome today’s diversity of opinions and investing styles. But I find my penchant for high-quality companies with responsible governance at reasonable valuations remains the same. I’m proud when our investment success produces strong client relationships. At City Different Investments, our values and consistency make the difference.
