Hall Capital is a family owned investment company whose current portfolio stands at $24B. Women executives and family is a rare combination in modern times. Most female executives are seen as an antithesis of family, but Helane Morrison embodies a simple but a profound influence on the investment firm. She oozes assurance and composure that is not only rare and inspiring, but also quite formidable in management.

A quick look at the values enshrined in the Hall Capital portfolio gives me the impression that the company borrows substantially from the Helane. She is always flanked with fellow women executives on the board, but the success reflects more than what the eye can see.

Morrison started her academic journey as a journalist by profession, a career that she did not pursue. She quickly found interest and traction in law up until her Juris Doctor graduation from the University of California. Her career highlight moment came when she worked for the 7th circuit court under one of the most social justice conscious people in America Justice Harry Blackman.

The previous roles prepared her for the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) appointment as the compliance officer. She was vocal and fruitful in stemming out the tide of unscrupulous businessmen and women who defrauded the public with sheer criminality. She held no prisoners in her quest at the greater San Francisco watchdog.

As an investment management company, Hall Capital operates in an environment that was partly responsible for the 2008 financial crisis. The public continues to be cautious as more and more economic crimes litter the industry. Her presence at the company gives me an impression that one cannot find a better partner to invest your money. She inspires me as a person ready to make the ultimate sacrifice. Given an opportunity, I know Helane will always do the right thing.

Though she manages a team that is essentially women, Morrison argues that it is the role of every man and woman to motivate every other child to strive to be the best. People should not feel inadequate because of their gender or background. Hall Capital under the principal and compliance officer Helane Morrison aims to make that environment conducive for everyone. She wants to break every management stereotype associated with women.

Her success remains unparalleled in the industry, and the company’s growth closely resembles her overall success as a social defender, complaint officer, a female executive, and an investor.
