The investment management service we offer is called ‘discretionary investment management’ – which helps clients to both protect and grow their wealth. Our dedicated investment managers take care of everything associated with the day-to-day running of a portfolio, from determining and maintaining the most appropriate blend of assets, to monitoring and managing risk, to dealing and administration.


To ensure our investment managers make the most from opportunities that arise, our in-house research team provides award-winning analysis on individual equities, funds, fixed income and alternative investments. This invaluable resource is complemented by extensive third-party research across all asset classes from other leading investment houses.
