Honesty and integrity. We are committed to the highest levels of ethical conduct and quite frankly would not have it any other way. We take pride in the fact we are quite selective with whom we do business with and expect the same level of integrity from our clients.
Initiative and a strong work ethic. We are committed to putting forth our best effort in all endeavors. Hard work, motivation and initiative are essential elements of our success, and we recognize and reward all employees for their individual contributions. This provides satisfaction and pride in a job well done.
Excellence. We seek the highest possible quality in people, work environment, client service, investment assets and asset management. Our attention to excellence means that we ascribe to high professional standards in everything we do. From this, we gain success in the business. This distinguishes us and sets us apart in the marketplace.
Trust and respect. We promote and encourage a sense of personal self-worth by treating each other with respect and by trusting each other to fulfill individual responsibilities. We respect our differences and provide freedom and flexibility to perform the work and achieve the goals we have agreed upon. This makes us more effective, and contributes to a great feeling of accomplishment when achieved.
Clear communication. We communicate frequently and openly. We clearly share our expectations of each other, and we honor the commitments we make. This enables us to have more effective and efficient working relationships.
Enjoying our work. We create a positive work environment which allows everyone to enjoy and gain satisfaction and personal growth from the work they do. This leads to increased fulfillment, higher morale, improved performance and less stress. We recognize that our employees have lives outside the office and that these lives must be fulfilling and satisfying in order for all of us to be successful.
Teamwork. We work in ways that capture the collaborative efforts of everyone in and associated with the company. We make better decisions as teams than we make individually. We recognize our need for leadership and balance this with the concept of teamwork.
