A CEO’s perspective: Navigating our core values at Wealth Street
15 August 2023
FOUNDER | CEO
As the CEO of Wealth Street, I am thrilled to connect with you through this article and delve into the heartbeat of our company – our core values.
These values aren’t just words on paper; they are the very essence of who we are and the principles that have propelled us from our humble beginnings where Abdullah and I worked tirelessly from our dining room tables, to where we stand today – a thriving entity pulsating with potential and purpose.
Our journey, inspired by the wisdom of visionaries like Jeff Bezos, Phil Knight, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Elon Musk, has been shaped by these remarkable insights. Join me as we explore how these principles have woven themselves into the fabric of our organisation and the strides we’re making toward a future that shines brightly.
1. Client obsession: Nurturing financial dreams
Our first core value, “client obsession,” resonates deeply with us as we undertake our mission to guide our clients toward wealth growth and the eradication of financial challenges. Inspired by the analogy Jeff Bezos drew, we see our clients as invited guests to a party, and we play the role of hosts. This sentiment drives us to understand their unique situations, goals, and dreams, enabling us to craft personalised wealth strategies that align with their aspirations.
2. Long-term thinking: Beyond quick wins
Phil Knight’s perspective that “To master the long run, you first have to master the short run” perfectly encapsulates our second core value: “long-term thinking.” From our inception at those dining room tables, we’ve had an eye on the future. True financial success, we believe, spans far beyond short-term gains. This value is ingrained in our DNA, reminding us that lasting prosperity is what we’re here to help our clients achieve.
3. Eagerness to improve: Embracing change
Elon Musk’s conviction that important endeavors are pursued even when the odds are not in our favor is embodied in our third core value, “eagerness to improve.” Like Jeff Bezos’s counsel to “lean into the future,” we actively embrace change. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s tenacity serves as a model for us, reminding us that growth comes from the pursuit of excellence. From our earliest days to the present, this value has fueled our journey of relentless improvement.
4. Pride in operational excellence: Overcoming challenges
Our fourth core value, “pride in operational excellence,” finds its foundation in Phil Knight’s insight that “The only way to deal with pressure is to embrace it.” Operational excellence is the bedrock of trust, ensuring our clients and partners pursue their financial goals with confidence. Upholding professionalism and overcoming challenges, we take pride in our ability to remain accountable, just as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s struggles developed his strengths.
Our core values – client obsession, long-term thinking, eagerness to improve and pride in operational excellence – are not just words etched on a page. They are a reflection of who we are as a collective force and a reminder of the standards we hold ourselves to, day in and day out.
As the CEO of Wealth Street, I am deeply committed to making our organisation a place where our employees thrive, where collaboration with our partners is seamless and where our clients find guidance beyond their expectations. Together, we’re not just building a company; we’re building a community driven by shared values and a common purpose.
Our commitment to making Wealth Street a hub of growth, prosperity and positive change is unwavering. Our client’s trust is a sacred bond, our partner’s reliance fuels our drive and our employee’s growth is celebrated. As we move forward, let’s carry the torch of our core values high. Let’s continue to embody client obsession, long-term thinking, eagerness to improve and pride in operational excellence in every action we take.
To the values that unite us and the legacy we’re creating – here’s to a brilliant future! Thank you for being part of this remarkable journey. Let’s celebrate our values, our journey, and the incredible road that lies ahead. Cheers to us – the dreamers, the doers and the architects of a future that’s bright with possibilities.
