We are guided by our core values which govern our conduct, shape our culture and define who we are as an organisation. Our core values delineate what we advocate and how we operate with one another, our partners and stakeholders.

Our strength is our people. As a group of highly motivated individuals, we are committed to working together to achieve true value. We encourage cooperative efforts across all levels and activities, and will continually share ideas and knowledge towards a common goal.

We value differences and treat everyone with the same respect that we expect from others. We are fair and honest in all our dealings, and always maintain confidentiality. We inspire and enable our people to achieve high performance and we believe all individuals want to achieve their fullest potential.

We strive for speed and accuracy. We give every task our full degree of care and commitment, and attend to matters with a sense of immediacy. We boldly seek out new opportunities in pursuit of our nation’s economic interests while ensuring sustainability in each of our investment and initiatives.

We do what is right without exception. We believe in good governance and operate with ethics; always staying within the letter and spirit of the law.

We are accountable and responsible for all that we do. Timeliness is fundamental to our work processes: we always keep to our word and promises made. To ensure the best value possible for our partners and stakeholders, we do not wait for opportunities to arise but take pro-active measures to make them happen.
