Integrity

We aim for the highest ethical standards. This requires transparency in our actions and honest, open discourse with our business partners, employees and other stakeholders.

Reputation

This is everything to us. We understand that our association with our business partners and other stakeholders is intrinsically tied to our own reputation. We aspire to be the best, not the biggest. We will only grow if it improves the service that we can deliver.

People

For us, individual personal values and a proper “fit” are as important as technical expertise. We foster a multicultural environment that is based on openness, respect and learning. Our business culture, however, is non-negotiable and our people must fit comfortably into this. Within this context, we recognise that diversity of experience and of opinion is a strength.

Reciprocity

We seek to work only with those who share our values and guiding principles. 

Humility

The best leaders are those who know the limits of their knowledge. We need to know our weaknesses to be able to address them. We must challenge the status quo and entrenched ideas, including our own. We treat all as equals and no task is beneath anyone in the firm.

Teamwork

We value collaboration with business partners, with clients and service providers, and within the team. There is no room for personal agendas. We promote an enjoyable, collegiate and challenging environment in which to work.

Excellence

We strive to work hard and smart. We achieve this through honest, ongoing evaluations of our successes and failures. We are conscious of a fast-changing world and the need to adapt to it. Our attitude to risk is that we should not be afraid of failure but to understand the risks we are taking.
