Our approach

We believe that long-term outperformance is delivered by being receptive to changing market conditions and having the confidence and expertise to react accordingly. Our framework allows for the flexibility to be creative in our approach while our governance process ensures that we remain true to our risk framework, disciplines, and beliefs.


Building our portfolios


  • Asset allocation optimised for higher risk-adjusted returns.
  • Review of global asset universe to provide diversification.


  • Proactive short-term adjustments informed by our macro view.
  • Robust framework ensures risk remains consistent with mandate.


  • Style agnostic approach to fund selection.
  • Sector specialists drive best-in-class fund selection.
  • Active management of foreign currency exposure.

Our global approach

Our approach is simple. By starting from a global perspective, we are free to invest in regions based on fundamental research, without being hampered by structural biases. 

Global markets provide investors with broad exposure to all regions and sectors. Global diversification reduces the concentration risk of investing in one region. Various regions experience economic cycles at contrasting times, so investing globally can help provide more consistent returns over time. 

Our four regional offices put us within reach of you and your clients.


The South West is a creative and industrious hub. Attracting people from all walks of life, this is one of the most exciting places to work and live.


For over 25 years, we have provided exceptional client service to individuals, families and businesses across the South West.


As one of the oldest banks in the city, we offer Private Banking, Commercial banking, Wealth Planning and Investment Management services.


A team of highly qualified individuals who have a common passion in providing a highly personalised and quality service.
