Our Values

Our success is based on the strength of growing and developing client relationships. These relationships are built on core values of trust and integrity. Upholding these values lets us grow stronger as a team and brings us closer to our clients.

Investment Philosophy

We combine Discretionary Investment Management with Holistic Financial Planning for private clients and trusts within the UK. We believe above average returns can be achieved using this active approach, as today’s environment sees economic events having more influence on asset prices than purely supply and demand forces.

Although we believe capital markets are efficient over the longer term, volatility over the shorter period often leads to inefficiencies and the opportunity for capital appreciation and profit.

We seek to use a number of independent strategies with their own unique drivers and different timescales to benefit from the market’s inefficiencies. Our investment process, with intuitive and timely action, seeks to capture profit and provide downside protection on portfolios. We believe in delivering real returns with fewer benchmark orientations, and to do this we use a research process that embraces unconventional thinking and seeks to uncover global opportunities…

Our Market Views

At the beginning of each year we hold several meetings to discuss the underlying themes and events that we believe will move and guide markets over the course of the year. At the end of each year we review our predictions to assess our accuracy against what moved the markets over its course. This helps us to align our understanding of macro factors affecting the markets as sentiment changes over time.
