Why do you offer Investment Advisory services only to professional and institutional clients, but not to private clients?

Our Investment Advisory services are tailored around specific requirements and have deliverables formatted for use by professional and institutional investors. This differs from traditional private banks which often embed advisory within their Execution Services and the client may get an opinion for a trade or is 'sold a trade'.

How are your Investment Advisory services priced?

Depending on the scope and client requirements, our Advisory services are priced either on a fixed monthly fee or based on the assets (basis points per annum) of a specific portfolio which we would be advising against.
