Everything we do starts with our values – this is our promise of how we are going to work together and treat our partners.
Ethical and Principled
We are open, honest, fair, respectful and responsible - which are the foundations of any relationship - whether it's with our employees, management teams or investors. We value personal integrity and believe in acting with both empathy and conviction.
All for one, one for all. We win and lose as one team. Our collaborative working style emphasizes teamwork, trust and tolerance for diverging opinions. We genuinely care for and support not only those with whom we work shoulder-to-shoulder, but also our investors, partner companies and the customers and communities we serve.
Focus on Improving
All firms make mistakes. Rather than pretending we are perfect, we strive to identify our mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes that have been acknowledged and fixed should be celebrated and not denied.
Tenacious About Winning
We are enthusiastic and dedicated to outperforming our peers in all that we do and have a burning desire to get beyond adequate to exceptional. We roll up our sleeves, dig in, and come to work every day searching for better outcomes. We relentlessly tackle tough problems. We see things through.
Embrace and Drive Change
We never accept or get too comfortable with the status quo because, historically, the firms that get into trouble are often the ones that are not able to respond quickly enough and adapt to change. We are continuously learning and ever evolving.
We are committed to our partners and every day we treat their money as if it were our own. Great partnerships are built by focusing on the long term and doing what is right not just for ourselves but also for our partners.
We believe success without humility is not success. We believe that no matter what happens we should always be respectful of everyone. While we celebrate our successes, we are not arrogant, nor do we treat others differently from how we would want to be treated. Instead, we carry ourselves with a quiet confidence because we believe that, in the long run, our character will speak for itself.
