WHO WE HIRE. Our clients trust us with their financial well-being. We earn their trust by attracting and retaining associates who share a powerful set of values.
Act With Integrity
We strive to do the right thing. Our high ethical standards and our strong conscience drive the choices we make every day on behalf of our associates, clients, stockholders, and communities. Ultimately, success is not just about the value we create but how we create it.
Put Clients First
We are fiduciaries, which means that, as a matter of principle, we put our clients' interests first. We seek to strengthen our clients' confidence without ever taking it for granted. We believe that when the client succeeds, the firm succeeds.
Cultivate Intellectual Curiosity
Our business requires a commitment to lifelong learning and continuous improvement. We look for opportunities and connections across our global platform, remain thoughtful and alert, and ask the questions that can unlock value for our clients.
Embrace Differences and Collaboration
We leverage the wisdom of multiple perspectives from our associates around the world. Working in collaboration, our diverse, experienced associates bring insight, engage in open debate, and embrace the broad sharing of information that keeps our thinking fresh and independent.
Apply Disciplined Thinking and Process
Discipline enables us to provide durable, long-term solutions. This intellectual rigor helps us to recognize and avoid short-term fads or inappropriate business practices. It helps us to see things as they are, not as we wish they were. Being disciplined does not mean that we donít take risks; it means that we carefully assess risks and manage them.
Pursue Excellence With Passion and Humility
We are passionate about the pursuit of both client success and outstanding business results and yet are careful not to overstate our achievements. We set high standards because that's what our clients expect and what we demand of ourselves. Our continuous pursuit of excellence means that our work is never done.
Our associates are at their best when they are helping others, be they clients or people in the community.
