We're launching our new podcast for those looking to make the first steps towards a career in social investment
When we think about social investment, we believe that the greatest chance to address difficult problems comes when both investors and enterprises are driven by social impact.
Our values
We believe that successful organisations are purpose driven, performance orientated and principles led. The following five organisational values have become our ‘guiding beacon’:
Purposeful
We are passionate and energetic in our work to bring about our long-term vision of a thriving social investment market that enables positive social impact.
Pioneering Spirit
We give our team the autonomy and flexibility to be entrepreneurial and creative. We have the courage to push boundaries and a restless drive for change.
Openness
We listen, learn, experiment and collaborate. And we are adaptive and flexible in responding to what we learn.
Rigorous
We take a rigorous approach in all we do. We expect the highest standards and continually strive for excellence.
Respectful
We are genuine in both our approach and aspiration. We value each member of our team and our partners for what they bring.
