We design solutions

Ethics

We believe in Man, in his unique, unmatched characteristics and in his ability to create and work for a fairer and more humane world.

We trust in the creativity and talent that we each possess to make the difference at every moment, to ourselves and to others, between riches and poverty, between happiness and misery, between ethical and unethical behaviour. We believe that each of us is accountable to ourself and to others for the way we live. We strive for a clear and faithful definition of contract conditions and do not intentionally allow ambiguity to creep into any clause in order to enable somebody to benefit from it. We aim for mutual respect for the agreed conditions, and where this is not possible, we draw solutions from the best market practices in line with the reasonable judgment of a bonus pater familias. We adopt the principle of reasonable prudence, constantly analysing and reviewing the risks, anticipating problems and expediting solutions.
