How we operate

To facilitate local decision-making and to make sure we have clear lines of control and central reporting we operate without unnecessary layers of management.

To further ensure control and accountability, a central executive committee comprising the heads of all the main business lines reports to the board of directors.

Our approach

Active management underpins our equity process and currency and fixed income management.

In property, we focus on high, risk-adjusted returns through advance portfolio modelling and active management.

Segregated structure

We work closely with consultants and plan sponsors to establish your asset-liability profile and provide customized benchmarks and reporting.

Pooled structures

These are useful for small investments in more esoteric areas.

The global range we offer includes:

  • U.S. & Canadian institutional commingled vehicles*
  • U.S. open-end mutual funds
  • Listed companies/investment trusts in UK*, U.S., Australia* & Canada*
  • UK domiciled unit trusts & OEICs*
