We set the highest standards of ethics; professional conduct; client care and advice, whilst prioritising your objectives, budget and expectations. We do not compromise these values, so have long lasting relationships with our clients built on trust.
Our logo, which is symbolic of our values, has been used since 1617, when it was granted to Jonathan Starck’s ancestor by King James I, following his donation of the first work dedicated exclusively to cabbala to augment the newly founded Oxford University Bodleian Library, who wrote of the fruitful union between theory and practice:
having judgment habituated by knowledge, knowledge guideth the eye, and the eye directeth the hand, and the hand followeth both, that each of them serve for a rule whereby the true measures of Nature are exactly expressed.
