Mission and values

Our mission is to craft the future by nurturing the distinctive craftsmanship, innovative spirit and creative inspiration of our people. In this way, we aim to create long term value for all our stakeholders: customers, colleagues, investors, partners and wider society.

As a family-spirited Group, we aim to achieve this through the long term profitable and responsible growth of our Maisons and businesses, by supporting them in designing unique and timeless creations and memorable experiences, and by continuing to protect their heritage in quality and craftsmanship, while driving innovation.

What makes Richemont different?

At Richemont, our true power does not lie in our similarities but in the rich diversity of our arts, cultures, and human skills, as well as our specific ability to foster untapped potential.

Our Group has built an array of competences to nurture all of its unique and diverse Maisons and businesses, allied with a strong set of values: flair for finding hidden gems, the respect to learn from their founding families, the courage to develop them, and the patience that allows them to meet their full potential over the long term.

We believe in creating goodwill, rather than buying goodwill. Over the years, hidden treasures such as Van Cleef & Arpels, Panerai, NET-A-PORTER and Peter Millar have experienced exceptional growth. We will take the time to nurture Buccellati and AZ Factory, the latest additions to the Richemont family, with the same care and dedication.

We pursue a sustainable performance through financial discipline and firm principles:

  • In our ways of working, we value solidarity, collegiality, loyalty and freedom.

  • The individual behaviours we encourage are curiosity, courage, empathy, humility and integrity.

  • We care for the world we live in. Richemont’s ‘Movement for Better Luxury’ demonstrates our longstanding commitment to conducting business responsibly, helping to create a positive impact for the environment and the many stakeholders involved in our value chain.

Richemont will always strive to foster a culture of entrepreneurship, respect and courage, underpinned by an ‘esprit de corps’. Success is achieved together, in an ethical and sustainable manner, with emphasis placed on the camaraderie between colleagues, and the fun that each derives along the way.
