At Lombard International, everything we do is driven by our core SPIRIT values – Soul of a small company, Passion, Integrity, Respect, Innovation and Teamwork. These values go beyond the workplace, as they shape our purpose, identity, and define our footprint and our legacy. Moreover, as a global leader in our sector, in an ever changing world, it is our belief that we should take a stand on social, cultural and environmental issues in the world and have a positive impact on the communities of the countries in which we operate.
This is why in 2018 we contributed to various important causes across Europe, all of them very close to our hearts. Our people organised company-wide donations, fundraising campaigns and took part in various charitable events.
