Purpose, Values, and Vision

Watch Igor Boguslavsky, our founder and CEO, discuss his “Why” with Andy Swindler on Andy’s Why’s Guy advisor.tv show. As Igor explains, his Why emerged from his childhood experiences in the former Soviet Union, and it has formed the evolution of Belmont Trading Company—especially our Purpose, Vision, and Values—ever since he founded the firm in 1988.
