New Naratif is committed to transparency and accountability. To this end, we publish our full financial accounts and issue a transparency report every six months. We also hold open meetings every month to allow all members, and anyone interested, to ask our senior management any questions that they want.
We do this not just because we are committed to these values, but because we want to set a good example. If a tiny startup with next to no resources can be transparent and accountable, why can’t governments and sovereign wealth funds?
