Business Standard:

Our experience shows that if we serve our clients well, our own success will follow;

  • We are dedicated to complying fully with the letter and spirit of the laws, rules and ethical principles that govern us. Our continued success depends upon unswerving adherence to this standard.
  • Profitability is critical to achieving superior returns, building our capital, and attracting and keeping our best people. Significant employee stock ownership aligns the interests of our employees and our shareholders.
  • We have an uncompromising determination to achieve excellence in everything we undertake. Though we may be involved in a wide variety and heavy volume of activity, we would, if it came to a choice, rather be best than biggest.
  • We constantly strive to find a better solution to a client’s problems. We pride ourselves on having pioneered many of the practices and techniques that have become standard in the industry.
  • We select our people one by one. In a service business, we know that without the best people, we cannot be the best firm.
  • Our men and women reflect the diversity of the communities and cultures in which we operate. We attract, retain and motivate people from many backgrounds and perspectives. Being diverse is not optional; it is what we must be.
  • We have no room for those who put their personal interests ahead of the interests of the firm and its clients.
  • Dedication and intense effort is important part of our success.
  • We want to be big enough to undertake the largest project that any of our clients could contemplate, yet small enough to maintain the loyalty, the intimacy and the esprit de corps that we all treasure and that contribute greatly to our success.
  • We know that the world of finance will not stand still and that complacency can lead to extinction.
  • To breach a confidence or to use confidential information improperly or carelessly would be unthinkable.
  • We believe to be fairly competitors and must never denigrate other firms.
  • We expect our people to maintain high ethical standards in everything they do, both in their work for the firm and in their personal lives.
