ValuesCitizenship

Abac Capital strives to promote and live with passion the following values that define who we are and what we do. These values are deeply ingrained in our beliefs. We are committed to them, and they help us shape a better firm.

Integrity: We share an uncompromising commitment to do the right thing.

Directness: We are honest and direct in our internal and external communications.

Excellence: We work hard to excel at whatever we do and to deliver outstanding solutions.

Entrepreneurship: We are constantly looking for new opportunities. See a problem? Bring a solution. See an opportunity? Chase it!

Accountability: We are all accountable for our job and take responsibility for our actions individually and as a team.

Respect: We like different backgrounds and opinions. We pride ourselves on respecting people of all races, nationalities and beliefs.

Team: We play, win and lose together. We complement each other like a jazz band.

Social conscience: Sharing time, knowledge and money with those who need it is an integral part of who we are and what we do. We devote 1% of our earnings to non-profit initiatives where the Abac Capital team is personally involved.

We believe that it is important for Abac to lead by example. We take pride in our extensive and multifaceted commitment to community service and support of non-profit organisations. Key elements of our citizenship initiatives include:

Pro bono work
Abac employees devote part of their work time to collaborate with non-profit organisations such as the Cottolengo del Padre Alegre or the Aura Foundation, with whom we have signed a long-term collaboration agreement. We also team up with educational institutions such as ESADE Business School and FemCAT’s “School & Business” program.

Non-profit board service
We encourage our team members to take active board positions in non-profit organisations and help these institutions with our organisational expertise and network of contacts.

Social entrepreneurship
Abac Capital collaborates with Ship2B, a social impact fund, analysing and offering investment recommendations on early stage social impact projects.

Abac to Foundations
Abac Capital donates 1% of its annual profits to a selected group of non-profit organisations sponsored by our employees.

Matching Gift Program
Abac matches euro for euro the donations that our employees make to charitable and non-profit organisations where they volunteer their time for service.

Sustainable Investment promotion
