CI'S CORPORATE PHILOSOPHY
The following values drive how we operate our business and influence our investment decision making. It is our belief that these play an important part in CI being able to sort opportunities into the genuine investment category and those that are not "bona fide". The CI values are critical in guiding our thinking through changing times.
These attributes are also embedded in CI’s performance reviews and staff are evaluated and rewarded on their adherence to these values.
Gratitude and Humility ~ Positive and respectful attitudes operating with self awareness and confidence. We value debate and learning; we acknowledge the beliefs, views and attitudes of others, while at the same time having clear, concise and rational investment beliefs of our own. In the investment context, this leads to better understanding of business trends and opportunities as well as creating a sound foundation for investment decision making.
Intentionality ~ We are active, passionate investors. Our intention is to focus on industries, assets and companies that have value latency, with positive operational, industry and strategic trends run by management and industry leaders with passion, energy, clarity and competence. We believe that by focusing on CI’s investment principles and business philosophy that performance and business success will come. Facta non verba (action and focus, not words) will determine our success.
Curiosity and Passion ~ We learn through doing the work. The curiosity and passion to learn how businesses and markets work underpins investment insight and sustained performance.
In the Moment and Present ~ Observe don’t predict. Concentrate on the things that make a difference and be detached from the things we don’t know or can’t change.
Authenticity ~ We are open and honest with our clients, employees and business service providers. We don’t mind being different to others.
