As a firm, we have four principles that guide our actions and our strategy:
We work as a partnership and this is a principle that defines the relationship between our people, our departments and with our clients. We are a growing business with big ambitions and our collegiate environment means we all work together to get the best possible results for both the firm and our clients. In a highly regulated business, we strive to attain the highest ethical and professional standards supported by our strong internal culture. As a result, our culture and values are at the forefront of everything we do.
We recognise that we are only as good as the people we employ, thus we continually invest in our staff, and even in adverse market conditions we are committed to developing the next generations. By focussing on employing top talent, encouraging our people to ask questions, test opinions and develop alternative ideas and solutions, we are able to create an agile workforce that can make decisions quickly and react to rapidly changing market conditions.
WHAT OUR PEOPLE ARE SAYING
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
We recognise that we are only as good as the people we employ. And while we are proud to be expanding the diversity of our staff, including by gender, ethnic background, and other characteristics, we fully understand that there is still a great deal to do in the City.
Becoming a truly diverse and inclusive company is not only the right thing to do, it is crucial to helping us grow our business. Our culture is strong and staff turnover low, so it will take time to change the visual diversity of the organisation, as we move towards better balance.
