Former New Star Asset Management founder John Duffield has unveiled further details of his new Brompton Asset Management venture.
Offering private client fund management direct real estate investment, Duffield is supported by many of his former New Star colleagues at Brompton.
Rupert Ruvigny, previously New Star's finance director; is the new group's finance and operations partner - while Michael Astor is technical partner and John Jay is business development partner.
The private client team - Simon Akroyd, Luke Hyde-Smith and Sarah Gannaway - are also former New Star employees.
Brompton's private client business focuses on absolute returns across a range of services including segregated portfolios, Sipps, ISAs, and offshore bonds. Families and groups can opt for units trusts and Oeics subject to a minimum investment of £5m.
Launched last summer, Duffield says the firm's aim is to provide clients with "sound and sustainable returns", through investments in a broad range of traditional and alternative asset classes.
"In constructing portfolios for our clients, we select funds run by experienced and talented fund managers drawn from across the market place," he says.
"We also recognise that asset class selection plays an important role in achieving long-term investment returns and to help us in that task we have assembled a respected panel of experts to contribute to portfolio composition and adjustment."
