Pono Asset Management is a long term holding company that is focused on creating and acquiring companies that have a like minded mission of generating a viable business while giving back to the communities they operate in. Pono Asset Management is a strong believer in creating value for its ownership all the while giving back.

​We look to promote the community spirit through our companies while generating increased income through our double bottom line approach of socially conscience investments. It is our belief that working together we can accomplish more and have better input which will thereby achieve better results.

​The current companies under Pono Asset Management were created by the owners and are being operated with their guidance, the goal being to continue to create companies, acquire companies or in some cases create partnerships with companies that share our mission.
Pono is a Hawaiian word that has no direct translation to the English language, but is a founding principal of our company.  
Investing can be seen as a one way street; however, we believe that we can, and have created viable business models where we can improve our bottom line by actively searching out responsible investments whereby the community in which we invest also directly benefits.
