Management | Message from our Managing Director
We serve our clients with a commitment to excellence at the highest ethical standards.

Dear All,

Leading with integrity

At Centaur Trust we live by a set of shared values, which guide the actions and behaviour of each of us. Our values and beliefs influence the way we work, as well as the way we serve our clients. Maintaining our reputation for excellence, integrity and credibility is essential for our success. Towards this end, we work hard to foster a corporate culture in which the highest standards of ethical behavior, individual accountability and transparent disclosure are not just expected, but ingrained in every employee, officer and director.

At Centaur Trust we value and acknowledge the trust placed in us by our clients and are committed to fulfilling our duties and responsibilities to the highest standards. We must treat each client as if he was our only client. That means resisting any temptation to cut corners.

Our Company’s success is owed to our people, who through the years, paid careful attention to integrity and demonstrated values that sustained client relationships. Integrity is also reflected in the way in which we treat our people, by creating an environment of mutual trust and understanding.

Leading with integrity is about creating a climate for continuing success. We are committed to providing a great workplace, where our people are inspired to achieve their full potential. Our philosophy is really simple. Our people should have the skills to leave but yet choose to stay.

If we behave with integrity, honesty, respect, responsibility and accountability in all professional and business relationships and if we provide a great place to work where our people are inspired to be the best they can be, Centaur Trust’s legacy of leading with integrity will endure. It's about creating an environment where good people can make good decisions.

Thank you,
