"We are not an 'all roads lead to Rome' bank. We are the extension of our patron's business and its financial partner. We shall deliver assurance and pertinent advice to them, no matter where they are. This shall never change." - Mathis Fournier, 1824.
"Merchant banking business of the 21st century is not much different from the one of the 19th century. Encourage enterprise, pursue the profitable, avoid the pitfalls, and provide constant challenge. These maintain our resilience and make us the ideal partner for people we want to do business with, whoever or wherever they are."- Partners' Council, 2010.
