Our business principles
Established in 1878, we believe our traditional merchant banking values are as relevant today:
- Our activities are straightforward. We remain focused on markets and services we know and understand, developing leading positions and unrivalled expertise.
- Our approach is prudent and considered. This enables us to grow sustainably, providing our clients with the confidence they can depend on us in all market conditions.
- Our businesses have remained local. We continue to provide bespoke services, developing long-term relationships to ensure our success in the future.
- We value our clients over everything else. What they do is important – they are the doers and makers of things, the wealth creators, the investors, and the savers. We ensure our services meet their specific needs and invest to support them as they grow
