The power of duality

We strongly believe in the power of duality and that valuing both IQ and EQ is essential for our people, our clients and our business. IQ-EQ brings together a rare combination of global expertise with a unique corporate culture that knows the importance of truly understanding the needs of our clients. IQ-EQ expresses exactly who we are and how we like to operate.

IQ

IQ enables us to respond to mental challenges. It empowers us with deductive logic. It gives us the ability to understand complex information and provide insightful solutions. It helps us identify the challenge and plan how to tackle it. Intellectual intelligence generates the solution.

EQ

EQ gives us the ability to engage on a personal level. It helps us listen and create connections. It enables us to see the challenges that lie behind the challenge. It gives us insight into how to relate to another person so trust develops. It allows us to balance the professional with the personal. Emotional intelligence brings out the best in people.

Working with IQ-EQ has been seamless – you and your team understand our business, advise us appropriately, and handle your side of our collective partnership so that we can focus on making good investment decisions. Evan Gibson SVP, Merchants Capital

Read our sustainability report

Our ESG roadmap

Our approach to sustainability is born out of our understanding that humanity stands at the crossroads of several interconnected global challenges highlighted by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These global challenges, which range from the climate emergency, to inequality, and to poverty, require urgent action from all sections of human society, including from companies. It is our fundamental belief that companies will be core to the creation of profitable solutions to the problems of people and planet.

For us, although we are early in our corporate sustainability and ESG journey, we believe we have a responsibility to embrace sustainability, and to contribute, in whichever way we can, whether through our operations or in how we support our clients, to these solutions. To drive our sustainability and ESG ambitions and to help promote responsible and ethical behaviour across our value chain, we launched our sustainability team in 2021.

Our Sustainability Strategy and Targets

Our sustainability strategy is based upon four key pillars – people, clients, planet, and governance, which, we believe, are fundamental to the longevity of our business. The strategy is heavily influenced by our commitment to powering people. We believe that to thrive in the future, fairness and transparency must be entrenched into our governance systems, and that we must enforce accountability, and hold each other accountable for our behaviours, our culture, and the ethical standards we aspire to. Our strategy is also, heavily influenced by our understanding that we need to take proactive actions towards reducing our carbon footprint, the usage of natural resources and energy, and the need to eliminate waste sent to landfill.

As we are relatively early in our corporate sustainability and ESG journey, Our sustainability strategy has naturally developed over 2022, and we expect will continue to evolve as we seek to fully integrate our approach to sustainability across our business. Despite this however, we expect the core focus of the four pillars to remain constant and are outlined below.

Core Focus

We Value Our People – we want our people to be able to be themselves, thrive and succeed.

We Value Our Clients – we commit to excellent client service and will support them on their ESG journey.

We Value Our Planet – we aim to reduce our impact on our environment.

We Value Strong Governance – we strive to uphold ethical standards, manage our risks, and protect our stakeholders’ data.

Introducing CHESS

Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) framework underpins IQ-EQ’s activities across all of our jurisdictions. It sets out our global approach to sustainable purpose and forms the basis of our decisions by focusing on business ethics and compliance, people and culture and community involvement.

CHESS is our internal employee-led initiative that adopts five main pillars: charity, health, environment, sports and social. At its heart, our CHESS societies promote social responsibility, inclusivity and encourage everyone in IQ-EQ to deliver positive change to their local communities. Over the years, CHESS has raised money for jurisdictional companies, conducted fundraisers,  helped to form sports and social clubs, and organised volunteering days for community enterprises.
