as a Team


The foundation of our investment philosophies and approach has always been a passion for investing and the power of collaboration.

Our vision is an investment firm focused on the power of collaboration to create a ‘new active’ way of investing. Exploiting our demonstrable success of working together, we have built an investment process to deliver goal-based investing. We have carefully selected a team with the required expertise, the determination to work as a team and the ability to think differently. Investment decisions are taken by all the team “sitting together at the same table”, not delegated to single portfolio managers or teams. This approach ensures the optimal capture of return, diversification and risk management for a total return objective.


The co-founders

We have been working together for more than 20 years. Seasoned investors with significant expertise in investment markets, we have built multiple teams and capabilities across all asset classes together. The foundation of our investment philosophies and approach has always been a passion for investing and the power of collaboration.

Where we are different

A highly experienced team

A combination of business and investment experience of our partners, with the determination to see the investment activity as a “practice” servicing our clients.

We co-invest

Entrepreunership + skin in the game: as co-owners of the business and at same time investors in our own funds we have aligned our interests with our clients.

A 360° perspective

A collaborative, team-based approach to investments, with a clear governance for decision making. We want to avoid both the bias coming from having individual “star portfolio managers” and the bias from having consensus decisions.

Our vision is long-term

We are looking for truly long term oriented clients. Whoever has a short term approach to invest should be discouraged from investing in our funds.
