About Us

Business Alliance has a culture dedicated to excellence and driven by high-performing professionals.  Our behaviours and interactions are moulded by our core values which are deeply embedded in our business culture.

Our core values

Integrity in action

We exemplify integrity in all we do. We speak up for what is right even if it feels difficult.

Humility and respect in our conduct

We respect and integrate a diverse range of perspectives and ideas. Continuously challenging, consulting and sharing form part of our philosophy.

Value our profession

We honour the profession by delivering the highest quality outcomes to inspire trust in the society.


We celebrate diversity and inclusiveness.

These values are at the heart of our DNA. We focus on the deeper, human relationships rather than concentrating on compliance work.

Our management team

We strongly agree that 'humans will always be necessary, for things like empathy, curiosity, passion, creativity, intelligence, innovation and intuition. These things will never be automated or replicated.' Yet, there is too much diversity to have everyone be an expert in every field.

We want our professional staff to be seen as predictors, impactors, disruptors and major influencers of our clients’ present and future needs.
