Capitolis Company Values



We believe a strong and safe financial system is critical for a well-functioning society and should work for everyone. We have the obligation and privilege to build and operate a model company for a better world, and lead by example, with purpose and intention in everything we do. We operate with a clear set of values that guide us– our way of being, decisions, and actions. These values define who we are, and we are committed to all of them.

These values are uniquely ours. We integrate lessons and learnings from others to inspire, influence, and shape our direction. If these values − all of them − speak to you, this is an amazing place, but we are not for everyone.

Our values are living and breathing, they help us deliver our purpose, and will change over time with feedback to best represent who we are today, who we aspire to be, and how we evolve.

We lead with purpose, while creating exceptional value.

We have to be a little crazy to change the world. We are driven by a deep sense of purpose and are intentional in everything we do. We are extremely passionate about what we do− this is not just a job. We believe purpose and value creation go hand in hand. Our platform enables us to make a bigger impact.

We pursue big breakthroughs, responsibly.  

We innovate to solve big problems. We embrace failure, don’t break things that really matter, and try hard not to make the same mistake twice. We move fast and iterate faster. We are responsible, ethical, street-smart and wise, and because we have been around the block a few times, our maturity guides us. Many are counting on us, and we take that very seriously.

We learn from the best and are unapologetically independent.

We proudly stand on the shoulders of giants. We are curious and inspired by others. We read, seek advice and perspective, listen, and question ourselves with humility. We collaborate broadly to bring in the best ideas. Yet, we make our own decisions, thoughtfully, based on our values, data, and logic. We are trailblazing our own path with conviction and courage.

We are obsessed with the future and fanatical about executing today.

We are maniacal about having a clear vision for the long-term. We are patient, building for scale, and investing for tomorrow. “Vision without execution is hallucination.” We prioritize only what matters and relentlessly deliver. We are agile, swift, and results driven.

We play tough, with heart.

We are more like a professional sports team than a family and are playing to win at the highest levels. We are all in. We have ridiculously high standards, voice our opinions and give direct feedback. We hold people accountable and there is no time to micromanage. We do not have capacity or patience for ego, pettiness, whispers, hierarchy, or politics. Only super smart, badass, good humans on our team. We believe in diversity and equality, cultivate meaningful relationships and respect each other’s needs, while considering the whole. We deeply care for and support one another, our families, and our broader communities. We create an environment where we are all that we can be.
