Our practice so far has been to be non-conformist rather than flowing with the tide. We know this is not the easy path but then it has always been so. It is credibility and independence that are dear to us and epitomise our core values.

At the same time, we will not stake any claim to be moralists as that can the most difficult test to pass and we admit it.
