Collins Stewart has launched a standalone fund management division, Collins Stewart Fund Management, and rebranded its wealth management division, Collins Stewart Wealth Management.
The firm, which operates in London, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man, offers two fund ranges, multi-manager and specialist. The multi-manager funds have been long-standing investors in alternative assets, and the range includes a fund of hedge funds. The specialist funds cover major equity markets including the UK, US, Europe, and fixed income.
The wealth management division, which manages and administers over £4.4bn, and also has a long history of alternative investment, has been given a new corporate identity focusing on its twin aims of preservation (as represented by ice) and growth (as represented by an orchid flower). The firm will be advertising at airports on all three of its island homes to build brand awareness over the next two years.
Neil Darke, head of Collins Stewart Wealth Management and Collins Stewart Fund Management, said of the move: “The investment in the rebranding of the Collins Stewart Wealth Management illustrates our commitment to growing our wealth management business. Collins Stewart is primarily known for its stockbroking and Aim fundraising business, yet we have an excellent wealth – and fund – management offering which deserves a wider audience. The rebranding is the first step on our journey to raise awareness of these businesses.”
