Who we are
Our investments are designed to preserve and grow our limited partners capital, provide financial security for hundreds of retirees, sovereign wealth funds, and other institutional and individual investors, and contribute to overall economic growth.
Unity Trust Financial is one of the world’s leading investment firms. We seek to create positive economic impact and long-term value for our investors, the companies we invest in, and the communities in which we work. We do this by using extraordinary people and flexible capital to help companies solve problems.
WHY CHOOSE US
The deep expertise of the Unity Trust team gives us a base of intellectual capital on which to draw knowledge from. The investments we make are the decisions of future opportunity. Through this work, we seek to ensure a secure retirement for all of our clients.
Our businesses are diversified across a wide spectrum of regions, industries, and asset classes, giving us the expertise, access to resources and critical mass to take advantage of investment opportunities on a global scale.
Our performance is characterised by a record of superior risk-adjusted returns across a broad and expanding range of asset classes and through all types of economic conditions.
The solutions we provide reflect insights generated by our diverse, global business platform, which encompasses private equity and real estate funds, hedge fund solutions, and credit funds. We have built the firm on a strong foundation of intellectual and financial capital. We focus on attracting exceptionally talented people and on creating an atmosphere that rewards initiative, independent thinking, and integrity. Our solid financial base, including strong capital, ensures our capacity to deliver on our commitments.
Everything we do is guided by this set of principles which define our character and culture; they have been at the core of Unity since its inception. These enduring qualities are the shared convictions that we bring to our professional and personal conduct – they are a fundamental strength of our business.
Our long-term success depends on whether we can add sustainable value to client portfolios. This value primarily comes down to performance, but also from our emphasis on quality across every aspect of our business – from client service to investment communications, from administration to corporate governance. That’s why we focus only on those markets, asset classes and strategies where we believe we have the resources to underpin such a commitment to sustained value. We think carefully before entering new markets; and we try to manage growth at a rate that does not compromise the standards our clients expect of us.
We expect everyone at Unity to work to the best of their ability in the interests of our clients, end-investors and shareholders. We strive never to sacrifice long-term good for short-term gain, and we seek to set the standards for good practice as investors and as a public company. We recognise that conflicts of interest can arise – we manage them by being transparent, open and making clear where we believe a course of action is unwise or unethical.
Financial markets are fickle and experience has reinforced our natural scepticism. At Unity we rarely take what markets say on trust. Our skill as asset managers lies in our willingness to ask questions, to buck consensus if need be, and to do our own research to arrive at clear judgements. This attitude informs how we approach our business overall. We encourage everyone to think afresh and not do something just because ‘that’s the way it has always been done’. By constantly asking questions we aim to arrive at better answers.
