Values - Our Compass
What makes our mission worthwhile is that we breathe by these values, every step of the way.
Focus on impact
Our vision is ambitious, but our time and resources are limited. Every decision, big or small, short or long term, maximises the contribution of our (funds / talent / time) to the vision. Evolution = question the best use of resources, at all times.
Take calculated risks
We generate impact because we’re nimble. Agility implies risks, and that’s a good thing. Any risk where client resources (capital, data) are not at stake is worth it if the odds are good enough. Playing it safe is the riskiest gamble.
Empower clients & employees
We reward contributions on merit - regardless of who contributes. We do this because we need the best employees devoting their talent & effort to the vision, and the best traders to entrust us their capital and intellectual property.
Our business is regulated to custody customer capital and information. We earn employee, client and regulator trust by being as transparent as we can within respect for employee & customer privacy, as well as the law.
We’re decent & humble
We build the product we love to use: if it’s not worth our savings, it’s not worthy of yours. In building it we treat customers, employees and providers with confidence in ALWAYS doing the right thing: decency & humbleness are the best ways to commanding respect.
