1UsefulnessAn investment is a decision to be useful: useful to businesses, useful to managers, useful to shareholders - and more broadly, to be useful to stakeholders around the communities, markets and economies in which we conduct business.
2CommitmentTo invest is to become involved in and committed to the transformation of a business by partnering with its management as a long-term investor to find new means for growth and competitiveness.
3TrustworthinessWe have a responsibility to those who entrust us with their capital. We also have a responsibility to the managers who seek our support in helping them grow their companies. And we have a responsibility to those who will come after us. We must constantly do what we say to deserve this threefold trust.
4RespectGreat ideas reflect a diversity of thinking and a strong respect for others – an acknowledgment that others have something to contribute, regardless of their ethnicity, status, age or position.
