Reciprocity


“Gold and silver are good things not as making you good, but as with them you may do good.”

St. Augustine, Catena Aurea.  

Reciprocity

What you, as investor, do with your return is your responsibility. Our responsibility is what Altum does with its profit and we are perfectly clear on this: we believe in the logic of gift and reciprocity. This makes us different. As a company, we charge for our services and we seek profits that allow us to be efficient, guarantee our survival and continue generating employment. But we do not seek to enrich ourselves. This makes us different. We know why we have created Altum and we are consistent. Therefore:

  • We deliberately limit our salaries to the public wages of senior staff at European level published in the official gazettes. Without vested interests. Without bonuses. Without stock options. Transparent.
  • We implement the “Altum100x1” programme: We donate 100% of Altum’s profits to a single objective: supporting evangelisation promoting Prayer, Mission and Formation of Vocations.

Altum100x1 Programme: How do we do it?

Commitment

We seek to finance projects whose aim is evangelisation. We do not simply give the money and forget about it; we finance specific projects, in specific sites for specific people.

Co-investment

We are not experts in social assistance. Therefore, we collaborate with institutions of the Catholic Church and with local entities that are on the ground and capable of bearing witness to the needs to be addressed, confirming that each donation has been used in the most effective manner and has borne fruit.

 

Co-responsability

For us, transparency on the destination and effective use of the assets is the key to responsible accountability, which will be seen annually in our Altum 100×1 Report. Therefore, we ask (we demand) full traceability in the projects in which we co-invest, such that we know at all times how much money is invested, in what projects and their social/evangelical impact, from beginning to end.
