Huntington Code of Honour
Self interest will drive the economy, but it must be balanced by good conscience. Adam Smith
Huntington Investment Partners™ will be developed as a member based, licensable ‘House of Brands’ business model, to drive leading edge risk management systems, replicating the functions of a commercial and investment bank.
Uniting philosophically, we will seek to partner across a variety of professions and industries, integrating funds management and financial services.
Partners will pool their sweat equity, intellectual property, cash investment, asset value and commercial acumen to found a co-operative capital structure, taking transactional risk.
All partners will take a fiduciary oath to protect and uphold the founding principles of mutualism, respect a high standard of client centric conduct and develop a brand synonymous with integrity.
Making a positive impact on any commercial community requires setting standards for integrity, business innovation and investment foresight. The global corporate mantra of ‘shareholders first’ is fundamentally flawed.
We must return to commercial tribalism, protecting our community from banking greed. Seven pillars of mutualism laid out by Peter Kellner, UK political analyst and journalist offer compelling, logical principles, when acknowledged and agreed to be embraced by a member body.
These principles offer a platform for a commercially fair and economically sustainable partnership.
Huntington members will enjoy a commercial and social environment based on the following seven principles;
Members acknowledge responsibility to the principle of mutuality.
Members choose mutual conduct over self-interest.
Members require economic and political power to be used and dispersed mutually.
Members require mutuality from those who seek financial gain in the social institution of the market.
All members require Government to discharge its duty to promote responsible market behaviours and act as an effective umpire.
Members require an inclusive society and equal access to the means to participate in it to the full.
All members require Government to guarantee equality of access but to leave delivery to independent market systems exercising their mutual responsibility.
