The GW&K Culture...
I think we have a special culture at GW&K. It promotes intellectual curiosity, team-centered problem solving, a strong work ethic, and thinking about the investment markets with an entrepreneurial perspective. These characteristics contribute to the high-caliber and long tenure of our investment and management teams.
