Our Values

Commitment to Clients

We are committed to providing exceptional client service — above all by delivering superior long-term performance — and by ensuring that our interests are fully aligned with those of our clients.

Integrity

Integrity and honesty form the bedrock of our business. We expect the highest ethical standards in our work and personal lives.

Excellence and Innovation

We aim for excellence in all that we do, and ensure that our investment processes encourage rigorous research, curiosity and continuous learning. We believe interdisciplinary, diverse teams are the most likely to yield new insights and produce the best results for our clients over the long-term.

Teamwork

Teamwork underpins our one-firm culture. We consider each of the women and men with whom we work as individuals entitled to respect and dignity, and we recognise and reward their contributions on the basis of merit.

Communication

Effective communication is critical to teamwork and to our relationships. We encourage and especially value hearing different viewpoints and respectful challenges to consensus opinions.

Diversity

Diversity, in the broadest sense, helps drive our success. A welcoming work environment, where individuals can bring the totality of their experience and perspectives, is an invaluable contributor to greater economic success.

Sustainability Research

Our investment philosophy, which integrates sustainability research with traditional financial analysis, affords us the highest opportunity to deliver outstanding investment results.

Independence

We have chosen an independent broad-based employee-owned partnership as an enduring business model. Similarly, we are committed to remaining a boutique investment firm focused on continual improvement in our performance.

Responsible Citizenship

We recognise and accept our responsibility to live in accordance with our values, to be responsible to the communities in which we live and work, and to the world community. We aim to reduce our environmental footprint where possible, we are mindful of ways to help our employees fulfil their personal responsibilities, and we actively encourage philanthropic engagement.

Sustainable Capitalism

Through engagement with our clients, our portfolio companies and the broader financial markets, we strive to promote a more sustainable form of capitalism. The Generation Foundation is an important element of this work.

* Although Generation seeks to provide superior investment performance, potential investors should be aware that this is an aspiration and there is no guarantee that this goal will be obtained.
