Wellington in the UK

We serve as a trusted partner to our UK clients, pursuing excellence to have a positive impact on their beneficiaries’ lives.

A trusted partner

We have been managing assets on behalf of UK institutions for more than two decades. Our clients are corporate and local pension schemes, endowments and foundations, insurance companies, financial intermediaries and family offices.

As a fiduciary, we work to help our clients succeed. We are prepared to think differently, drawing on our differentiated investment capabilities to help meet their evolving needs. Today, we work with UK institutions across equity, fixed income, multi-asset, liquid alternatives and private markets.

What do our clients benefit from?

We combine the agility and autonomy of a boutique with the infrastructure and investment resource of a large, diversified multi-asset manager.

Empowered investment teams and rigorous proprietary research

We have no chief investment officer, which gives each of our investment teams the freedom to follow their own philosophy and process while benefiting from the resources of a large, global firm.

Sole focus on investment management

Managing money for clients is our only business, which helps us to focus on our goals of exceeding their investment and service expectations.

Dedicated ESG and climate research resources

We integrate our proprietary ESG and climate research with our active ownership of securities, which aims to better insulate portfolios from sustainability risks and positions them to take advantage of opportunities.

Open, collaborative culture

Our investment decision making is informed by the healthy debate, diversity of thought and free exchange of ideas which form the cornerstones of our investment culture.

Long-term perspective of a partnership structure

Our firm’s structure helps us to attract and retain outstanding talent, build stable investment teams and focus on long-term results.
