About us

We manage investment portfolios on behalf of our clients over the long term and have held shares in some companies for over 20 years.

We launched our first investment strategy in 1988.

For over three decades we have applied the same investment philosophy consistently across our investment strategies.

We generate our own ideas, carry out research and sustainability analysis, and engage with companies ourselves, rather than relying on others.
