Firm snapshot

Our purpose

WE EMPOWER PEOPLE TO BUILD ON THEIR STRENGTHS & FULFIL THEIR DREAMS

This is a statement we designed as a team. We created this for application in how we think about our clients as partners, and how we think about colleagues as friends. The structure hierarchy matters not, neither does any imbalance in knowledge. Rather, in every moment it comes down to serving each other. We position ourselves in all scenarios to understand where someone’s ambition is taking them, and to use everything in our power to get them there.

Our Values

Our Values describe who we are and what we stand for. They are the engine room of executing the firm’s Vision and Purpose. They govern our actions, are a reference point for decision making, and will determine our success.

BE THE YODA

Proactively provide holistic solutions.

At CharterNet, we value being the Yoda – meaning we strive to become the gatekeepers of our clients’ business affairs who are consulted across all decisions, big or small. We are trusted to consistently think outside the box and create optimal solutions for our clients.

STRENGTH THROUGH DIVERSITY

The sum of the parts is greater than the whole.

At CharterNet, our collective differences are what make us better, stronger and more effective than our competitors. We speak 14 languages, are tertiary qualified in 8 different fields and have serviced clients across 17 major industries.

Kaizen

Continuous improvement in what we do. 

We believe in Kaizen – a philosophy of continuous improvement, evolution and pushing ourselves to be better each day. 
Observing Kaizen can be as simple as putting your hand up to try something new or different to the current process.

In 2019 we consolidated our core values and developed an unprecedented Focus Value. Every quarter, as a team, we decide on a focus value for the month, something we can live and breathe together, and one that speaks to the time. Start thinking about a particular value you think we should live next quarter..

We regularly donate our services on a pro-bono basis to help the underserved. Here are a few of the causes we are committed to:

SHARING OUR LEARNIGS, IP AND PROCESSES WITH YOUR BUSINESS.

What we can bring to your business

FUTURE OF WORK

Technology and innovation has long been a priority at CharterNet. In 2015 we formed a technology committee whose mandate is to analyse, implement and integrate new technologies to improve our efficiency, collaboration and results.

PARTNER IN SCALABILITY

As a boutique business advisory firm to emerging and fast-growth businesses, our services are designed with adaptability in mind. We understand our partners are on an ever-changing trajectory of growth, and thus our processes and systems have been created to scale dynamically. This flexibility has been a key CharterNet differentiator, setting the right foundation for the long- term nature of our client relationships.

ECOSYSTEM

We have a comprehensive network of ancillary professionals including specialist lawyers, bankers, brokers, specialist wealth and capital advisers, marketing functions, and even bookkeepers from boutiques to top tier firms. Whilst we undertake services internally to the extent possible, specialist services and firms are called upon as and when required to co-advise on client engagements. We are committed to sharing our ecosystem and becoming an embedded member of our clients’ teams—not an add- on service but rather an intrinsic part.
