'I hope that you will agree with me that Covid-19 was a defining feature of 2020. In more ways than one, it forced us all to confront the fragility and realities of life. (...) We do not know what 2021 will bring, but I want to assure our clients that we will be there for them – regardless of the circumstances. On behalf of the firm, I would like to express my gratitude to our clients across the various segments we serve.'
Our business is impacted by the world around us, and our strategy needs to reflect and respond to that.

In order to monitor whether we're on track to deliver on our ambitions and create long-term value, we define financial and non-financial KPIs and targets.
Wealth generation is essential to create and maintain stability in our society. This requires a long-term focus in which economic, social, environmental and governance factors all need to be taken into account. We believe that, via the generation of wealth and its redistribution through taxation, we can contribute to creating and maintaining a stable and successful society. Our value creation model below provides an overview of our impact and the value we create in the long term.
