Creechurch Capital – the boutique discretionary fund manager – has grown its assets under management in excess of £300million as it reaches the end of its third year of trading.
Launched in 2010, the firm has added more than £150million of private client assets in the past 12 months. The award-winning business has achieved this growth internationally and on the Island, remaining dedicated to its Manx roots.
Meeting its targets with six months to spare, the firm is now over half way through its initial five-year-plan and has exceeded all expectations against an unparalleled challenging economic backdrop.
Creechurch Capital is committed to developing its team and has made a number of key appointments in 2013 to support this growth and the firm is actively recruiting for another five roles so it is perfectly placed for further expansion in 2014.
This year has already seen the firm crowned as winners of the Professional Adviser ‘Best in Class boutique DFM’ and shortlisted for a Citywealth ‘Investment Management Company of the Year’ award.
John Greenwood, CEO at Creechurch Capital said: “To have reached our £300m target ahead of this week’s third birthday is absolutely down to the unwavering work ethic and excellent client service from every member of the Creechurch team.
“We’ve grown our team of five to 17 and through investment in training and development; we’re committed to retaining this talent in the Isle of Man and improving the talent pool.
“Despite our significant growth, we will safeguard our boutique principles and provide the exceptional level of service that has become the Creechurch hallmark.
“There’s certainly cause for celebration and have a number of internal events, as well as the launch of our new market-leading website.
“None of this would have been possible without the initial support from the Isle of Man Government and private investment we received. I’m hugely grateful to those who recognised the potential in those early days.”
The majority of the growth has been achieved off-Island, bringing business back to the island and flying the flag for the Isle of Man across the globe.
Despite the fact it is now a business with a truly global footprint; the firm continues to make its mark on the Island, through initiatives, such as sponsoring equestrian star Yasmin Ingham, the airport lounge or its annual KHG Funds golf tournament.
