Our approach is to create in-depth, high quality research on UK listed Investment Companies, providing a valuable insight to inform client investment decisions. We use our powerful distribution to stimulate demand for Investment Companies across a wide range of investors, including private wealth managers, multi-asset and multi-manager funds, family offices, institutions and retail broker platforms. In addition, we provide liquidity through market-making in c.275 funds listed on the London Stock Exchange.
Following the implementation of MiFIDII, we have maintained the broad distribution of our Research and Sales service to secondary clients. Our research-driven approach focuses on Investment Companies with specialist or differentiated mandates across the full spectrum of equity and alternative assets, including quoted and private equity, debt, infrastructure, property and other alternative assets. The value of our service has been recognised by our secondary clients who have voted us No.1 for Investment Companies Research and Sales in the 2020 Extel Survey.
The strong long-term relationships we have built with our clients help them to achieve their goals and, to date, have raised over £10bn of capital for Investment Companies. Our collaborative approach allows us to provide market-facing corporate advice to our 51 retained Investment Company clients.
