Our ‘4Es’ talent framework incorporates development programmes and opportunities for our staff to gain Experience, Exposure, Education and Enrichment. We encourage mobility as a way of developing our talent to acquire multidisciplinary domains and these include job rotations to different teams, overseas assignment, stint in portfolio companies, stretch assignments, mentoring, coaching etc.

Our Remuneration Philosophy

We anchor our compensation framework on our strong ownership ethos. This places the institution above the individual, emphasises long term over short term, and aligns employee and shareholder interests over economic cycles.  This fosters a high performing and responsible culture where our employees think and act as owners, with a strong sense of intergenerational duty.  We balance rewards for short term performance and long term value creation, and share the gains and pains alongside our shareholder. Deferred incentives and clawbacks are integral to our remuneration.
