All companies About us

Rathbones provides personalised discretionary investment management and portfolio services for private clients, charities and professional advisers.

With more than 800 staff in 14 UK locations, the firm invests across a range of assets including fixed interest, equities, property, commodities, cash and alternatives. It also offers a selection of equity, multi-asset and bond funds managed by Rathbone Unit Trust Management and a specialist team led by David Coombs.

In April 2014, Rathbone announced it has agreed separate deals worth a combined £57.4m to buy Jupiter’s private client business and Tilney Investment Management’s London private arm. The deal is expected to boost Rathbones’ fund under management by approximately 12.3 per cent to £25.6bn.

According to the firm’s latest results, total funds under management rose to £22.8bn during the first quarter of 2014; up 3.6 per cent from the £22.0bn posted at the end of last year. Meanwhile, its unit trust business had increased by 16.7 per cent over the quarter following a £222m inflow, taking funds under management from £1.8bn to £2.1bn.

The group also announced that it has extended its range of advisory services further through the purchase of law firm Rooper & Whately at the start of May 2014.
