We believe that high quality research and connected teams deliver positive outcomes for clients.

We believe we add value through our deliberate, active decision making at each stage of the investment process and that all styles of investment require active decision making at some level, whether that be incorporating fundamental discretionary or systematic quant approaches.

“The level of responsibility and exposure has been staggering. It is an incredibly stimulating environment to work, and I have enjoyed the plethora of opportunities that have already come my way.”
Eleanor Jamieson

“The culture is unlike any other firm I’ve experienced – everyone in the company is so down to earth and willing to help with any or problems you may have. There are always people socialising after work and having fun in the office too. It’s genuinely the best working culture I’ve ever experienced.”
