Corporate culture and corporate values
The impact of the economic crisis has made a long-term change of corporate culture in the financial sector absolutely imperative and cultural change is needed. We understand the message: Responsibility has to be the focus of our actions. In 2013, we laid the foundation for long-term change with the release of our new values and beliefs.
Our corporate values and beliefs
|We live by the highest standards of integrity in everything we say and do||We drive value for shareholders by putting long-term success over short-term gain||We earn our clients’ trust by placing them at the core of our organization||We foster innovation by valuing intellectual curiosity in our people||We protect the firm’s resources by always thinking and acting like owners||We build diverse teams to generate better ideas and reach more balanced decisions|
|We will do what is right – not just what is allowed||We encourage entrepreneurial spirit which responsibly balances risks and returns||We deliver true value by understanding and serving our clients’ needs best||We enable our clients’ success by constantly seeking suitable solutions to their problems||We live by the rules and hold ourselves accountable to deliver on our promises – no excuses||We put the common goals of the firm before ‘silo’ loyalty by trusting, respecting and working with each other|
|We communicate openly; we invite, provide and respect challenging views||We pursue lasting performance by developing, nurturing and investing in the best talent, and by managing based on merit||We strive to pursue mutually beneficial client relationships in which the value created is shared fairly||We continuously improve our processes and platforms by embracing new and better ways of doing things||We achieve operational excellence by striving to ‘get it right the first time’||We act as responsible partners with all our stakeholders and regulators, and in serving the wider interests of society|
