At Vidia, we aim for both impact and financial return outperformance, taking advantage of a rapidly changing landscape. We are convinced that creating a culture of transparency and inclusion leads to more robust decisions to navigate an increasingly complex and uncertain landscape. Diversity in all aspects, such as gender, ethnic and socio-demographic backgrounds, informing diverse opinions across the team, is therefore a key element of Vidia and firmly embedded in the firm’s leadership.
