Based in Edinburgh, we are one of the UK's leading and fastest growing independently owned investment management firms with 750+ employees and global assets around £100 billion under management and advice.
In business since 1908, we are wholly owned by 39 senior executives who operate as a working partnership.
As active managers in the composition of investment portfolios, we are able to sensibly manage and support the needs of our clients by focusing on long-term sustainable growth, rather than short term targets. We offer clients stability through a well developed and successful international investment approach, the courage born of long-term thinking and experience to back our investment judgement, and a stable firm with low turn-over of personnel.
At the heart of our firm is our investment approach, something which incorporates the development of our people as well as our philosophy and processes.
Our organic growth (no mergers or acquisitions) and commitment to remaining independent enables us to provide stability and motivation for employees.
We invest in the career development of our staff by offering on-going training, not only within specialised areas of investment management functions, but also in personal development and people skills.
Our commitment to the training and development of our staff is reflected in our becoming the first Scottish investment management firm to be awarded the national ‘Investors in People’ standard.
