Bespoke Investment Group was formed in May 2007 by co-founders Paul Hickey and Justin Walters. Prior to founding Bespoke, Mr. Hickey and Mr. Walters worked and studied under the tutelage of famed market strategist Laszlo Birinyi. From the outset, our goal at Bespoke has been to provide clients with timely investment ideas that are presented in a way that’s easy to read and understand. Bespoke’s original content is viewed as a refreshing change from the cookie-cutter research provided by most Wall Street firms. This is evidenced by our large following of both professional investors and the financial media, who use our work on a daily basis.
“Bespoke” is a British term for tailored clothing made at a customer’s behest. Bespoke clothing is “created without use of a pre-existing pattern, differentiating it from made to measure, which alters a standard-sized pattern to fit the customer.” When we launched Bespoke, we wanted to emphasize the unique relationships that we build with our clients, and there wasn’t a better way to convey this message than to include “Bespoke” in our company name. Many years have now passed since we opened our doors for business, but our message remains as strong as ever.
