Peer review:

We work with complex, multi-jurisdictional clients who require a significant level of attention and support. James has been transformative for our business; no ask has been too big or small.

Peer review:

James epitomises the qualities required of an excellent modern day adviser. Proactive yet diligent, responsive yet always taking the time to understand a client’s needs and, perhaps most importantly, kind. James is always willing to go the extra mile not for the sake of his personal interests but because James will always seek to deliver what is best for the client. I cannot imagine a client for whom James would not be a great adviser.

Peer review:

James's straight-talking and honest approach to investment is hugely refreshing; and the personal qualities he brings to his dealings in business - pragmatism, professionalism and integrity - make him a trusted advisor both to clients and fellow industry professionals.

22 Oct 2018

Peer review:

With a cross section of clients from across the wealth spheres, James combines a flawless approach to investment strategy with a hunger to really understand his client's motivations and objectives. He also has a deep understanding of the best advisors in London for private clients (and why they are the best). His attention to detail and desire to succeed sets him apart from the crowd.

Peer review:

James' proactive and solutions orientated approach make him a safe pair of hands to refer to clients to.

18 Oct 2018

Peer review:

James is excellent with clients, pro-active and has an excellent knowledge of the market. He avoids confusing clients with jargon and cuts through it all so that they understand where they are and where they are hoping to go. Clients love his considerate but no-nonsense approach.

09 Oct 2018

Peer review:

James has shown on numerous occasions that, in addition to his unquestionable knowledge of the market, he possesses the rare ability to understand what clients actually want as opposed to, sometimes, what they think they want.

Brought together holdings from five different custodians and two property portfolios into a single global multi-asset portfolio

 

I was approached by the settlor, and newly appointed trustees, of a large Caribbean trust who were concerned about the status of the trust’s various investments. The previous trustees had built up a disparate portfolio of investments in multiple currencies and jurisdictions with little concern to performance, liquidity, costs or appropriateness. Over the following eighteen months, I brought together holdings from five different custodians and two property portfolios into a single global multi-asset portfolio that befitted the requirements of the trust.

Following the simplification of the trust assets, reduction in cost and improvement in performance the settlor added significant further assets.
