  • Establishing and managing funds in a variety of jurisdictions

Richard was Chairman of CFA UK which entailed promoting the highest ethical standards and developing relationships with leaders across the profession: investors, managers, regulators, politicians, media and the public.

Our investment experience includes asset allocation and portfolio management at some of the largest investment institutions globally, trading equities in both emerging and developed markets, as well as investing in a wide range of non-equity asset classes across multiple jurisdictions with funds domiciled in US, UK, Asia, Cayman Islands, BVI, Luxembourg, Ireland, Mauritius, etc.

'CapStone' is a proprietary suite of software, which has been designed and applied over a number of years and it is this which has provided the backbone and differentiating factor of our original investment process.

  • Asset backed lending
  • Convertible bond arbitrage
  • Sub-Saharan African equities
