Proven investment success

Independent External Asset Managers Our client wanted to offer their existing resident non-domiciled client base an international custodial solution (that was non Swiss-based) for non-UK regulated assets.

We were able to introduce a custodian who managed the relationship, offering the client full advisory and discretionary services plus leverage.
Family office We were able to introduce a significant off-market real estate opportunity to the principal of a family office.

The arrangement suited both parties, especially as we were able to bring together lending and legal professionals who completed the deal, smoothly and efficiently.
Multi-family office A multi-family office was looking to take on clients from an emerging market background.

We were able to introduce a relationship that improved their KYC documentation and compliance, therefore allowing the onboarding of this significant London affiliation.
