Our Shared Growth Ambition is a very simple concept. When our customers and clients do well, so do we. When the communities we live and work in thrive, we do too. And when society prospers, we all do.
Barclays has always played a part in driving economic growth and societal progress. And today, we have more opportunity to play a pivotal role in fostering innovation and facilitating inclusive, shared growth for all – now and as we develop the future of banking.
At its heart, our Shared Growth Ambition is about making decisions and doing business that provides our clients, customers, shareholders and the communities which that we serve with access to a prosperous future.
As a business, this means using our skills, resources and commitment to drive and deliver the best results for all our stakeholders; by seeking fair, ethical and open solutions to problems and by always striving to leave things better than we found them.
