Our values

Our work is based on three main values.

  1. We Thrive Together: by working together across countries, teams and functions we reach better solutions. We embrace the unique diversity of our competences, backgrounds and strengths to become an organisation of empowered people.
  2. We strive to Grow for good: we grow as individuals and as an organisation by challenging ourselves and others. We seek to inspire each other, our stakeholders and the world to follow our lead.

Our dream

We believe that all finance can and should be green, for good.
