Favorite Nitrogen Value

My favorite Nitrogen value is Heart of a Champion. It challenges our people to execute and deliver for the advisors and firms we love to serve with a growth mindset — always seeking to innovate, be curious, and compound every day. I think it’s a big part of why we’ve built such a great company.
