Reciprocity and stability

Two of our key business principles, reciprocity and stability, rely on recognising our own responsibility to make a positive societal impact. 

Climate change is an important topic for clients and investors alike. In parallel, inclusive growth and the impact organisations have on society are increasingly a focus, and more than ever, organisations are being held accountable for their impact. We focus on how we can improve to build a future that delivers growth, sustainability, and inclusion. 

Our responsible business initiatives enable us to monitor and measure our impact by considering the impact of our practices and outputs across five pillars: governance, colleagues, community, environment, and clients. 

Our pillars

Robust governance system, promoting transparency, integrity, and accountability 

The bank operates to high standards of corporate accountability with an effective Board and Board committees. This, together with the role and overall holding of Sir Henry Angest, the ultimate majority shareholder, and compliance with PRA and FCA regulations and with those of the London Stock Exchange Alternative Investment Market and the Aquis Exchange, is fundamental to our success as a business. 

 

Human right commitments 

The bank is committed to operating in an ethical manner, and ensuring the relationships we have with all our stakeholders adhere to high standards. These are reflected in both our Anti-Modern Slavery Policy and in our Supplier Code of Conduct.  

The bank is committed to finding and reducing the risk of slavery or human trafficking in every part of our supply chain. 

Our London headquarters relocation in 2024 presented us with the opportunity to review and reduce our environmental impact. Scope 1 and 2 emissions are managed through energy efficiency and renewable energy sourcing.

We are also reviewing our waste management; we currently send zero waste to landfill and will be making efforts to further reduce the waste we produce. Our new London premises is BREAAM rated excellent.
