LONG TERM PLANNING

"Richard looks at the big picture and thinks long-term. He ensures that our investments are handled according to the level of risk that we are comfortable with, and despite the great volatility of global politics and markets in recent years, our investments have done much better than we feared likely."

Our Story

In 1978, John Hitchell had just taken the difficult decision to leave a secure job with a high street bank and was looking for the next challenge. He hated the corporate, target-driven culture of the banking industry and felt there must be a better way to treat clients.

 

It was fair to say the bank was very traditional, even insisting that John shave off his beloved beard as ‘it was scaring the older customers.’ However, the final straw was having found his dream home, his mortgage application being denied because it ‘had more bedrooms than he needed,’ only to discover that his manager had bought the house instead.
