Corporate

Founded in 1881, our company has a long history in finance. We began investing in global equities in the 1920s, developing our Asian and emerging market capabilities thereafter. We have built on these specialisations ever since.

Today, we manage active equity portfolios for a global client base of financial institutions, charities, foundations, endowments, pension funds, family offices, government agencies and investment funds.

Our affiliation with Legg Mason, one of the world’s largest asset management firms, in 2014 has enhanced our company both financially and culturally. It has elevated our operational platform to best-in-class, with an institutional grade infrastructure and a highly distinctive product offering which, when combined, create a highly compelling client proposition.

Importantly, though, the company’s corporate independence has been preserved. An autonomous business model means we operate with freedom of thought and action, ensuring our interests remain closely aligned with those of our clients.
