What makes us special
1. All solutions offered by ICG's experts are unique as they are strictly customer-tailored and developed on a case-by-case basis to meet the exclusive interests of a certain bank/company (not its top-managers or shareholders) in due time and place. That's why these solutions cannot be used in another bank/company without considerable changes.
2. ICG does not have plans for global expansion, each of its experts cannot be a non-executive director in more than 5 banks and/or companies located on different continents.
3. No lobbying or dummy director functions. ICG's basic principle is ensuring value for money. Non-executive directors representing ICG are able to ask hard questions challenging the company's top-management, and are not afraid of offering constructive dissent or finding joint solutions. Our representatives can be discharged of their duties by the shareholders at any time if their contribution to the BoD activities has proved to be ineffective.
4. We adopt most effective strategic management and business solutions, as well as improvement ideas collected throughout the world to the concrete national and corporate standards. If there's no solution to the problem the BoD tries to deal with, ICG is ready to find new opportunities instead.
5. Our reputation of independent professionals is more important to us than out of hand vested interests. Our opinion is exclusively based on facts, our knowledge and expertise obtained through advising the BoDs in various countries of the world. We have always thought that we should better tell the BoD the truth about the company performance whatever hard it may seem than conceal it following the wish of some shareholders or top-managers. We take full responsibility for our recommendations but it's the BoD's choice whether to vote for them or just take into consideration.
6. Our solutions and recommendations are well defined, clear, time and resources commensurate, pragmatic and bringing the best possible results.
7. We are absolutely free in our deliberations and enjoy what we are doing.
