Carmel Capital Partners

Carmel Capital Partners is an investment-centric firm for investors who are looking for an alternative approach to investing. The San Diego-based firm was founded in 2002 by Russell Silberstein with the goal of delivering stable long-term returns for clients through opportunistic, value-oriented investments
To achieve this, they have rejected the Wall Street status quo of selling cookie-cutter mutual funds and ETFs just to “set it and forget it.” Instead, they invest directly in equities and fixed income, and they go beyond traditional investments to incorporate real estate and private equity.

Great Ecology has strategized, designed, built and worked on over 1000 projects over the last two decades, including at least 35 mitigation banks in 8 states.
Great Ecology has offices in San Diego, Denver, and New York City.
