About us

Blue Heron Research Partners is an international leader in qualitative due diligence. By applying the fundamentals of investigative journalism, we uncover actionable investment insights about companies and their management teams.

The blue heron is quite literally a bird of due diligence and exemplifies our core belief in thorough, deliberate, deep-dive research.


Our founder David Rynecki chose the name while looking out over the salt marsh in what is known as the “Lowcountry” in South Carolina. He was inspired by the elegance and thoughtful diligence of the blue heron. In an environment busy with crabs, oysters, fish, birds, and mammals, he watched as the blue heron stood unwavering, taking in all the details of its surrounding environment while it identified its subject and took deliberate action.
