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 engrained in our beliefs. We are committed to them, and they help us shape a better firm.

Integrity: uncompromising promise to do the right thing and to be honest and direct in our internal and external communications.

Entrepreneurship: we are constantly looking for new opportunities for the funds. We look forward to partnering with entrepreneurs and teams that seek to excel at what they do. See a problem? Bring a solution. See an opportunity? Chase it!

Excellence: we work hard to excel at whatever we do, as we are personally accountable for what we do and we owe it to the funds. We hire and train top professionals to deliver excellent solutions.

Team: we play, win and lose together. We complement each other, just like a jazz band playing in the same boat. We are all accountable for our job and we take responsibility for our actions individually and as a team.

Respect: we like different backgrounds and opinions, as we think it makes us not only better professionals but also better human beings. We pride ourselves for respecting all sorts of people, opinions, beliefs, and nationalities. Our recommendations are apolitical, fair and based on merits after listening to all stakeholders.

Social consciousness: sharing time, knowledge and money with the underprivileged is an integral part of who we are and what we do. 1% of all our profits go to charity projects where the Abac Capital team is personally involved.

We pride ourselves on our extensive commitment to community service and nonprofit organizations. Key elements of our citizenship initiative include:

Abac to Foundations: Abac Capital donates 1% of its annual profits to a selected group of nonprofit organizations sponsored by our employees.

Matching gift program: Abac matches euro for euro the donations that our employees make to charitable and nonprofit organizations where they volunteer their time for service.
