Our vision is simply stated to turn global knowledge into value and profit for the benefit of our clients (G for Global, K for knowledge and P for Profit), our people and our capital markets. Each of these areas we take very seriously. The quality of our advice and independence with which we offer it is greatly valued in the investor and business community.
Our values and the principles on which we work are widely respected and lead to our people working in an environment where they can learn and develop whatever their particular backgrounds, skills or ambitions. This helps to underpin our diversity.
At the same time we are committed to putting back some of what we gain into the communities in which we work and we work with a number of client charities including The Global Disaster Relief Fund, the BEBO Charitable Trust and The British Mexican Society.
We are committed to creating a working environment where people can flourish and find the freedom to fulfil their potential. Our ambition to create a great place to work helps us to attract talented people which in turn makes us the best choice for our clients.
As part of our People strategy, we examine our approach to a number of areas such as recruitment and retention, personal development, flexible working, overall reward, people management, leadership, diversity and inclusion. Our progress in these areas is reviewed regularly by the Partners.
Values create a sense of shared identity and define what we stand for and how we do things, helping us to work together in the most fulfilling way to provide the best service to our clients.
We lead by example at all levels acting in a way that exemplifies what we expect of each other and clients.
We work together bringing out the best in each other and creating strong and successful working relationships.
We respect the individual respecting people for who they are and for their knowledge, skills and experience as individuals and team members.
We seek the facts and provide insight challenging assumptions, pursuing facts and strengthening our reputation as trusted and objective business advisers.

Our values are at the heart of our Code of Conduct, which defines the standards of ethical conduct we require of staff.
Diversity is at the heart of our business.
We continually develop and enhance our approach to diversity and inclusion.
A significant proportion of our intake is from minority ethnic backgrounds and/or female. Indeed as clients are aware one of our key partners is female.

It is this blend of traits together with our technical skills and experience which makes us the best choice.
