Hippocratic Oath

Every member of our investment team is sworn to a strict code of conduct when they join. By signing the following Hippocratic Oath, they pledge to uphold the principle of stewardship through their conduct and work practices.

  • 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”
