The Values Driving Our Culture

Maintaining a strong culture anchored in clear, frequently communicated values is at the heart of what makes Overlay Capital a leader. We are committed to the highest standards of ethics, business conduct, and company principles, and every employee is expected to uphold these standards.

Take the Broad View

'Taking the broad view' has two key implications. First, it means we focus on anticipating contextual changes that might significantly reshape the business environment, and it means we have to work with others to co-create value.

Second, it means we have to imagine different time horizons and use them - not just to make plans for the future - but to also gain broader perspective on the present.

Always Act with Honor

We believe honor is a better word than integrity to describe our core value, as it imparts an active mindset.

It's more than a double check, it is a way of operating, woven into how we relate to our investors and partners, our fellow team members, and society.

Quite simply and succinctly, "Act with honor," is the standard we hold ourselves to in each and every action.

Run the Simulations

It's tempting to make snap judgments and to think in terms of ‘point estimates,’ but that can limit one’s ability to think in terms of a spread of outcomes.

'Running the simulations' means thinking in terms of probabilities and investments being individual ‘bets.’

We believe this is a responsibility to ensure we are comprehensive in our diligence and that we are always enabled to make fully informed decisions.
