JM Finn

We look after our clients' wealth so they can nurture their passions.

Offering a high quality, personalised wealth management service, we look to guide our clients through the increasingly complex investment world to help them realise their lifetime goals. Integrating our wealth planning expertise with our investment management heritage ensures JM Finn can provide an appropriate service for your needs.

With a dedicated investment manager as your main point of contact, our personal approach allows for a responsive and flexible service to cater to changing investment needs. Thanks to a rich history of managing family investments, we can tailor our services to suit investors' differing needs across multiple generations via a generally conservative approach to investing, which typically sees us seeking returns over multiple market cycles, as opposed to targeting quick gains.

With over 100 investment professionals, we look after £9.3 billion of funds on behalf of over 18,500 clients (as at 31st March 2019).

It is important to remember, that the value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and that past performance is no guarantee of future returns. JM Finn is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Manorbridge Investment Management

Manorbridge Investment Management is a specialist private client practice, aiming to achieve strong investment returns for our clients over the longer term. All of our portfolios are unique for the individual and we do not believe in putting clients into boxes or shoehorning them into a model. This way we try to ensure the investments are exactly right for both the client’s circumstances and the prevailing market conditions, not only at the outset, but for many years ahead. Being independent we are not constrained by central buy lists or management strategy, so we will only buy what is best for the client and their individual circumstances.

We pride ourselves on the level of personal service we provide and we never forget the client is at the heart of everything we do.

Having spent many years working for larger organisations, the three founders set-up Manorbridge Investment Management in 2018, helping to ensure we can maintain our approach to investment management, whereby we retain the traditional values of looking after clients in a bespoke and personal manner.

LGT Vestra

At LGT Vestra we never lose sight of the fact that it is your money that we manage. Our processes are based on achieving your goals while working entirely within your risk parameters. To create a return for you we cannot avoid risks, but we need to make sure these are in line with your willingness and capacity to take risk. As a firm that understands the importance of personal relationships, we are always happy to adapt to your individual requirements. We manage BESPOKE portfolios. Above all, we believe clients are individuals and that the portfolio should fit the client, never the other way around. When we state BESPOKE we mean it.

We prefer an ACTIVE approach to investment management. We employ a wide range of asset classes and are ready to make changes to portfolios as and when necessary. We seek out active managers who add real value to portfolios. Where we feel there are no suitable active alternatives, we will buy funds that track investment indexes. Creating above average risk adjusted returns is a key performance criterion. We will work with you to develop a suitable benchmark to measure your portfolio performance.

  • Portfolios covering a variety of risk profiles, asset classes and in multiple currencies

Saltus

Saltus

In 2004 Simon Armstrong and Jon Macintosh took a leap – to set up their own investment management company and to rethink some of the norms of the time resulting in these principles:

  • To bring investment management services to private clients that were then only available to very wealthy families and institutions.
  • To work within pre-determined risk limits so that more clients’ money can be returned over time than they originally invested, whatever the market conditions.
  • To invest globally, across many assets classes, unconstrained by industry benchmarks. And as importantly, to choose not to invest in an asset class or investment strategy, if analysis demonstrates there is no merit.
  • To search the world to find what they believe to be the best way to access each investment opportunity.
  • To use plain English.

Saltus is an independently owned investment management and financial planning company, established in 2004. We currently manage and advise on assets of over £1.3billion. Our clients are private clients and family groups investing their pensions, trusts, investments and ISAs. Our clients come to us direct, typically through referrals from other clients or are introduced to us through financial advisers, solicitors, accountants, consultants and trustees.

We have a team of 90 people based in our offices in London, Manchester, the Solent, Bournemouth and Ferndown.

Our objective is to preserve and grow the wealth of our clients over time, irrespective of investing conditions. We do this through risk based, multi-asset class investing.
