our people

The culture and people are the best thing about True. I always think about how lucky I am to have been able to start my career at True with people who genuinely care about my personal and professional growth.

Qianhui Yang, Investment Analyst

Having previously worked with True when at the John Lewis Partnership, I recognised the potential of the unique model that True operates and saw a team with huge ambition to grow something really special.

Archie Mason, Director, Innovation

I wanted to join True because it’s a different way of approaching the industry we’re in, and this coupled with the retail and consumer angle gave me real reason to be excited.

Cameron Kanda, Investment Analyst

I wanted to be a part of True because we’re building something in a company that shared similar ideals to myself. I was looking to find a common goal and I instantly knew from meeting Matt and Paul that I liked them, wanted to work with them and be on the True journey.

Serena McCutcheon, Head of People and Operations

A portfolio that excites us. Every day.

We work with brands that inspire us, shape consumers’ lives and create positive change the world over.
