We are responsible for our clients’ money. We are responsible, where appropriate, for influencing the way companies conduct their businesses. The financial services industry as a whole has a responsibility to do things better and have a positive influence on the environment, human rights and society. We want to play an important part in this.
We are accountable for the decisions we make to all our stakeholders. We are accountable for performance. We are accountable for our clients’ money. We realise that there are consequences to the actions we take. We will stand by our decisions and what we believe in. We won’t always be right but we will always be accountable.
The confidence to be different.
We understand that our views on companies, the market and the way we invest may be different to a majority of others. We have the confidence in our process, our approach and our decisions. Sometimes the best decisions for the long term are the ones that aren’t recognised at the time or require courage of their conviction in the short term.
