The principles that guide Clarendon Wealth Management were best set forth in the letter John Nguyen's late father, Nguyen Van Thoi, left for his children while battling terminal cancer: “I want you to remember the following principles throughout your lifetime:

Integrity: Live your life with virtue and integrity. Maintain your principles at all times, regardless of how difficult it may be to do so. Be dependable, reliable, and credible. Never lie, cheat, or steal from anyone to get ahead in life. Do not let anyone look down on you.

Loyalty: Never forget those who helped you in any way: the boss who provided your employment, the teacher that educated you, the friend that befriended you.

Duty: Never forget where you come from. Love, respect, and care for your brothers, sisters, parents, and grandparents.

Love and Respect: Always live with a good heart. Be sincere, help those who are less fortunate, who are not as well off as you. Do not judge anyone by how much money they have.

If you embrace, practice, and convey these principles, you and your children will go on to be good and successful people.”
