We believe that good corporate governance is fundamentally important to running our business successfully.
Investing in People
We recognise that employing talented people delivers the best results.

In addition Mint is a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) initiative.
A disciplined, repeatable approach to investing is paramount to our success. We will limit the amount of money we manage, to ensure we continue to be highly effective at managing the funds we are entrusted with.
Shared investment and ownership interests create a natural balance.
