Our firm is independently-owned by its partners, and this structure means our interests are wholly aligned with our clients and we are 100% focused on them. We provide a range of investment solutions including:


The aftermath of the global financial crisis has created a new paradigm in fixed income, posing far-reaching challenges for investors. Low or negative yields in key bond markets mean searching for yield is a key concern for investors. And with the very nature of bonds now altered, investors are forced to rethink asset allocation. In their search for yield, we believe investors searching for yield should consider taking more credit risk and explore emerging market debt

Indeed, our positivity on emerging markets extends to equities, where we believe increased economic strength is not fully captured in asset valuations; similarly, european equities are also an attractive destination for investors, in our view. Regardless of the asset class, investors are increasingly taking into account extra-financial considerations – seeking to invest with impact – but they must look for the right expertise or risk their capital being put to work in a way they did not intend.

As was widely expected, the European Central Bank has kept its monetary policy unchanged, both in terms of the level of interest rates and the pace of the Asset Purchase Programme (APP).
