Accordingly, the staff members are highly encouraged to devise the appropriate benchmarks, set realistic targets, and be responsible for their actions. As a result, they are rewarded for their achievements and commitment to their task at hand.
Teamworks, collaboration, and information sharing is vital in maintaining a cohesive organization, promoting creativity, and bringing out the best of each staff member. Such an environment dilutes politics and partisanship.
Knowledge is essential for maximizing investment returns in a constantly changing global economy. It is the responsibility of each staff member to remain continuously informed and updated on the knowledge in his or her area of expertise as to recognize market trends, new investment instruments and new emerging investment ideas. As an organization, KIA constantly provides its staff members with the tools and the means to gain such knowledge through the appropriate training resources.
Although the outcome of an investment decision in unpredictable, it is the organization's duty to identify and understand the drivers and the risks associated with the process of analysis and information validation.
KIA's most experienced staff members are always involved, across all layers of management, in the decision-making process. The objective is to enforce a strict consistent analysis and investment discipline to ensure compliance with the objectives of the organization, and to avoid the preference and influence of any single individual.
KIA’s role is to create an environment that will nurture and develop the leaders of tomorrow so as to enable them to produce the best management practice and tactics in all sectors of the economy.
