We believe we will be successful if our clients are successful. There is nothing more important to us at AllianceBernstein than serving our clients to the best of our ability. But we insist on doing it the right way. When it comes to ethics and integrity, we demand 100% compliance with our standards of professional conduct. It’s not only what we do—but also how we do it—that ensures success for our clients.
At AllianceBernstein, one of our core values is partnership. Our commitment to integrity, open mindedness, research excellence and meritocracy enables us to build relationships based on honesty and trust. Our culture celebrates intellectual curiosity, encourages a willingness to self-examine, and creates an environment of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. It drives our ability to deliver extraordinary client service and to generate superior long-term financial performance.
As a fiduciary, we are committed to the fair and equitable treatment of all our clients, and comply with all applicable rules and regulations to which our business is subject. We pursue these goals through firm-wide regulatory and ethics training programs to promote awareness of our fiduciary obligations, incentives that align employees’ interests with those of our clients, and a range of measures, including active monitoring, to ensure complete compliance. Additionally, we have formed committees comprising heads of the business to directly oversee ethical and compliance issues.
We believe in creating a work environment where there is a strong link between individual performance and success. While individual performance is important, we realize that it is improved through partnering with people from diverse backgrounds and experiences. These partnerships lend to our willingness to self-examine and fuel our intellectual curiosity. Drawn from many backgrounds, our people are talented individuals who share a commitment to the highest standards of professionalism. They have a passion for research and knowledge. They have a learning mindset and the drive to operate at 120% of their capabilities—not necessarily for their own personal gain but because they understand how their performance can shape our clients’ and our firm’s success. The tenure of many of our senior management is indicative of our ability to provide effective professional and personal growth opportunities.
