Success in our business relies on being able to recruit, motivate and retain a talented group of professionals, drawn from a diverse and representative background. We believe that diverse teams drawn from different sectors of society have a broader outlook and are better equipped to originate attractive investment opportunities and manage our portfolios. We therefore focus our charitable activities on the disadvantaged, on young people and on education, aiming to equip young people from all backgrounds with the tools and opportunities to pursue a successful career to help the needies. The charities we partner with are supported on the basis of their effectiveness and impact. We also support staff giving and sponsorship through matching donations.
