aphrodite-melissa-longleyMelissa Longley – Longley Asset Management

Melissa Longley and Paul Stevens of Longley Asset Management (LAM) offer bespoke investment management services.   LAM is a specialist owner-managed firm located in the heart of the West End, and also with an office in south London.  Their investment solutions incorporate the ‘whole of market’ investment universe rather than just employing standardised products from a limited selection of companies.  Melissa and Paul previously worked together at Kleinwort Benson Private Bank, and between them have over 50 years of experience in working with private individuals and their professional advisers.  Both are ‘Chartered’ with the Chartered Institute of Securities & Investment and Melissa is actively involved in several professional networks for women.

You can be confident that you will obtain high levels of expertise and integrity from LAM, underpinned by a traditional approach to working collaboratively with both clients and their advisers. Melissa and Paul appreciate that it takes time to build trust and therefore give as much time as required to get to know you and understand what you wish to achieve and fully understand how daunting the need for change can be.

Mary Haly & Cuthbert Hopkinson

Waverton Investment Management

Mary Haly – Director & Portfolio Manager  
Cuthbert Hopkinson – Portfolio Manager

Waverton Investment Management was founded in 1986 and looks after over £6bn of assets primarily for private clients. The firm is owned by its staff and we know that to succeed we must put the requirements of our clients first. Absolutely central to our philosophy is a highly bespoke, flexible, service as few portfolios we manage have the same specific requirements. We therefore encourage direct communication between our portfolio managers and our clients. We look after investments in a variety of structures including general investment accounts, ISAs, SIPPs, trusts, OEICs and family investment companies. Clients may be UK resident and domiciled, UK resident and non-domiciled, US connected and/or have the requirement for a portfolio with enhanced ethical, environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards.

We take a global direct stock view towards building investment portfolios as this gives us a large opportunity set and provides clients with the benefits that geographical diversification can bring. This is vitally important in an age of technological disruption. We know each of the stocks in a client’s portfolio intimately. As signatories of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), we incorporate ESG factors into our company research as well as actively engaging with management and voting at company meetings. Our direct stock approach also has a cost benefit.
