Self-Determination from a Financial Perspective

what do we want
What do we want?
  • The goal of Native Hawaiians is Self Determination
    • A better quality of life:
      • Education
      • Health
      • Career
      • General well-being (spiritual, emotional, etc.)
    • Being in control of our own destiny
the critical path
Reliance on Yield on

Alii Trust Assets

The Critical Path
  • But there is only one best path; or “Critical Path,” and that is through education
  • The lynchpin on that Critical Path (and indeed all paths) is the dependence on the yield generated by the management of Alii Trust assets



Lynchpin on the

Critical Path to Self Determination

additional yield multiple
Additional Yield Multiple?
  • The natural byproducts of having NH Asset Mgt firms managing Alii Trust Assets are myriad, and all in alignment with Alii Trusts’ goals, and serving Alii Trusts’ constituents:
    • Management fees kept locally, in local economy
    • NH owners/principals = NH profits
    • Hire NH employees in high skill/high paying positions
    • Opportunities to hire NH ancillary support services
    • Greater wealth; greater opportunity to improve education, health, and general welfare
    • NH Asset Mgrs will have a better understanding of the awesome responsibility/honor of managing Alii Trust Assets because we come from the neighborhoods served by Alii Trust funded programs
no handouts no excess risk
No Handouts, No Excess Risk
  • There are no additional risks assumed by the Alii Trusts by having NH Asset Mgt firms manage trust assets because:
    • Management of Alii Trust assets done competitively in the open market; not part of an in-house management program
    • Market forces will ensure that only firms delivering the best risk-adjusted returns will be engaged
    • If NH Asset Mgt firms manage trust assets, it is because they earned this right in a free and competitive marketplace
focus on the lynchpin
Focus on the Lynchpin
  • We need to develop a program to achieve self-determination from a financial perspective
  • A world-class, training program that focuses on producing NH financial talent capable of competing in the open market for jobs at top ranked non-NH asset mgt firms
  • Eventually, a percentage of these trainees will go on to start their own NH Asset Mgt Firms capable of competing in the open market for the management of Alii Trust Assets
a better way
A Better Way…
  • What if:
    • Instead of continuously funding the program with grants, the Alii Trusts made an INVESTMENT in a new NH Asset Mgt Firm?
    • The NH Asset Mgt Firm is owned by a non-profit whose mission is to RUN THE FINANCIAL ANALYST TRAINING PROGRAM
    • The Alii Trusts hold positions on the BOD of the non-profit parent to ensure their interests are being represented
a better way1
A Better Way…
  • What if:
    • The profits of the NH Asset Mgt Firm are used to fund the training program
  • The Alii Trusts still get yield on their INVESTMENT (a source of cash) instead of continuously funding the training program directly via grants (yet another drain on cash)
  • The NH Asset Mgt Firm then BECOMES THE “TRAINING VEHICLE” used to ensure our students get THE BEST training/exposure to actual operations of a real asset mgt firm, with PAID internships so they can focus on, and get paid to study rather than work odd jobs
