Waverton

Waverton Investment Management is an independent investment management company, dedicated to providing a high quality service for private clients. Our business is discretionary investment management and we also offer integrated financial planning advice through our group company Timothy James & Partners. Our resources are focused on achieving one aim - generating superior investment return for our clients. We have been successfully managing portfolios for private clients for decades, so we understand that all clients have different investment profiles and require a personal approach. In our opinion, this is best achieved by portfolio managers rather than relationship managers. Our portfolio managers work directly with you, so they can gain a deep understanding of your situation, drawing on the experience and insight of the wider team when required. Absolutely central to our philosophy is a highly bespoke, flexible service.

For the majority of our clients we prefer to invest directly in equities. We have a clear and pragmatic investment process that has a global bottom-up approach to security and fund selection combined with an asset allocation overlay

Clients come to us from across the UK and our expertise include:

  • Portfolios covering a variety of risk profiles, asset classes and in multiple currencies
  • ISAs, trusts and personal pensions
  • Private family funds and other family investment vehicles
  • Responsible investing portfolios

Waverton also has a great deal of experience in managing portfolios for international clients and for those who are resident in the UK but who are foreign citizens, including US citizens.

In effect, they give our team the privilege of looking after what is probably the most important thing in most peoples' lives after their personal health and their families.

We are active investors and seek to add value through both tactical asset allocation decisions and individual security selection. This process involves tilting the mix of asset classes in different market conditions and then expressing our views by selecting the most appropriate investments.

We invest according to market conditions today, but also within the context of a long-term strategic framework. Our process focuses on delivering an optimal combination of income and growth within an agreed tolerance for risk.

We believe the best way to deliver real returns and reduce risk is through diversification – investing across asset classes, global regions and types of investments.
