Values

We commit to the observance of a core set of values, which are outlined below. The primary motivation for these values is ethical, but we also believe that these values are, in the long-term, in the best interest of Respubleco and its clients.

Some of the practical implications of these values are listed under our operational principles.

Independence

We provide independent advice exclusively to our clients. Should a conflict of interest arise, we commit to disclosing it, or to turning away business that would be affected by such conflict of interest.

Confidentiality

We recognise the sensitive character of part of the work we do for our clients. Accordingly, we respect our clients’ desire for, and right to, confidentiality. We use adequate standards to ensure the security of information held electronically.

Openness and intellectual honesty

We are open with our clients about what we will and won’t do. We are open about our methodologies and processes. We can be wrong, but we do not provide our clients with advice we do not believe ourselves (in other words, we don’t sell bulls**t). We recognise that this can, at times, involve the delivery of difficult messages to our clients.
