By signing the following Hippocratic Oath, the investment team pledge to uphold the principle of stewardship through their conduct and work practices.
Our Hippocratic Oath
We will treat our clients at all times as we would wish to be treated
We will not allow the pursuit of personal gain to cloud our fiduciary roles
We will strive to achieve, through hard work, sober analysis and sound judgement, the best risk-adjusted returns possible for our clients
We will not, however, pursue these returns to the extent that our actions will knowingly harm others
We will remember that a share in a business brings with it responsibilities as well as rights
We will not forget in our search for returns that the primary risk faced by our clients is losing their capital
We will not succumb to irrational exuberance in good times, nor to unjustified gloom in bad times
We will present a balanced viewpoint, highlighting risks as well as potential returns
We will recognise that our role within society is to allocate capital where it can be used most productively for the future benefit of all
We will not be ashamed to admit our mistakes and will strive to learn from them, as well as those of others
We will share our experiences - both good and bad - with our peers, and work together with them to earn the respect of those outside the investment profession
We will play our part in promoting financial education as it benefits wider society
Finally, we will recall at all times the stricture “those who stand for nothing, fall for anything”
