Leslie J. Lammers, CFA
Leslie founded Riverstone in 2004 to manage client accounts that she has invested since 1993. These clients are the bedrock of Riverstone today. She founded Riverstone to have the freedom to do the right job for clients. She thinks that portfolios should be tailored to an individual’s needs. Her ability to see, understand, and analyze a market, demographic, or business trend provides your basis for investing success.
Leslie believes that there are great investments out there and that it is her job to find them. She calls this the “so many boys (girls) at the dance” concept.
Leslie is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Chief Investment Officer of Riverstone Advisors. She is a CFA charterholder and lives in New Braunfels, TX.
