Living our Values

‘All learning starts with “I don’t know”. Having moved countries in my younger years, I learned quickly to be comfortable with not knowing and learning from my new culture and environments. In markets that lack transparency of information and fast-changing conditions, intellectual humility is the starting point to acknowledging we need to work even harder to prove our convictions and check our assumptions. I felt at home at Zetland having found a firm that encourages curiosity, collaboration and thrives on respectful debate. Being part of a firm where these values drive our actions makes me get out of bed every day.’
