Our culture and values

To quote our Chairman, we are a “Bank with a soul”. It’s an attitude that explains our approach to everything we do, from our commitment to sustainable growth to how we communicate with our clients and colleagues to our rich 150-year heritage.

Do the Right Thing

Our global workforce recently helped us define our core values, and how these can shape our working culture. They reflect what we expect of ourselves and each other.

Be assertive, challenge one another, and live with integrity, while putting the client at the heart of what we do. 

Never Settle

Continuously strive to improve and innovate, keep things simple and learn from doing well and not so well.

Better Together

Be yourself, be inclusive, see more good in others and work collectively to build for the long term.
