We are an independently owned investment management boutique with a strong partnership culture. We offer our clients the benefits of independence, stability and a long-term perspective.
We focus on generating real returns. This means protecting and growing the purchasing power of our clients’ capital. Founded on a global thematic approach and using proprietary research, we have a track record of superior investment performance with below average volatility.
Our investment team has on average over 20 years' investment experience and we take pride in offering our clients a personal service. We have offices in London and Zurich and we currently manage over £2.5 billion.
The business was originally founded in Zurich in 1993 by Anthony Rosenfelder and a London office was opened in 1996. In 2004, Stewart Newton, the founder of Newton Investment Management, joined the group. We have always understood and valued the importance of stability within investment management companies and in January 2013 the group restructured to ensure that the management of the business was aligned and focused on its clients. The current group structure emerged at that time.
Our philosophy and culture stand out amongst our peers, guided by two founding principles.
Our investment philosophy is aligned with our clients' objectives – to protect and grow the purchasing power of their capital over the long term. We focus on real returns and consider risk as the potential for permanent capital loss. Our sole aim is to deliver long-term real returns, ahead of inflation, to our clients. Over 20 years, we have consistently achieved this aim by adhering to our common sense investment philosophy and process.
We have a deep-rooted culture of partnership. The investment team comprises of experienced investment professionals who are committed to providing a personal service to all our clients. We are independently owned by the partners and employees, which creates stability and focuses us on achieving client objectives.
