James Hambro & Partners

Who we are

James Hambro & Partners (JH&P) is a limited liability partnership that looks after the investment affairs of private clients, families, trusts, charities and not-for-profit organisations.

JH&P was established in 2010 and was originally the discretionary private client investment management subsidiary of JO Hambro Capital Management Limited (JOHCM), an institutional fund manager with global reach and expertise. The individual Partners acquired the majority of the equity in the business in 2012. Senior members of JOHCM sit on our Asset Allocation Committee and are also equity partners in our business: a powerful indication of their commitment to and alignment with our success. This is perhaps most evident in the joint involvement at company meetings.

In 2012 we acquired Calkin Pattinson, a well established and like minded financial advice company (now renamed James Hambro & Company (JH&Co)). This allows us to offer a wider range of services where appropriate.

What we do

Our starting point is uncomplicated – it is that all our clients:

–          Deserve maximum security for their capital assets and, just as importantly, for their income;

–          Should not be deprived of any investment opportunity that can preserve or enhance their wealth, so long as it meets our rigorous criteria for liquidity, underlying value and meets the clients investment objectives as set out in their risk profile;

–          Must receive the highest level of service with direct access to their portfolio manager or financial advisor.

In our view, the most important objective in investment management is the protection of the real value (after inflation) of clients’ assets over a prolonged period. The greatest test for a portfolio manager is the ability to achieve this objective.

Overall, successful private client asset management derives from the delivery of an outstanding information flow to a seasoned team of managers who know how to interpret and implement a comprehensive investment process within agreed client tolerances, and can communicate this openly and transparently to our clients.
