Our Core Values

  • Creating Value / Rewarding Excellence

    Our members share our ethos of mutual benefit for mutual effort. Exclusive memberships are booked via invitation only and all applicants are subjected to our internal vetting procedure. Each firm is therefore required to have an exceptional reputation, the highest professional standards and niche expertise.

  • Vetting Process

    We look for firms who are not just content to be part of the industry but lead through innovation

    All applicants are subjected to a stringent vetting process prior to acceptance. During this process, we analyze firm market position, rankings and gauge feedback from connections in their jurisdiction. Each firm is required to have an exceptional reputation and the highest professional standards. In addition, a face to face meeting or conference call is required to discuss their motivations and why they do what they do. This also ensures the applicant is aware of group philosophy / expectations and how they can utilize their membership to best effect.
