What we

Expertly managed investment portfolios

Picking investments is hard. Wealthy investors use professionals to actively manage their money for them. We want to bring this to you.

Borrow against your investment portfolio

Stay long term invested. We offer a line of credit, subject to assessment, to help cover any unexpected expenses (can't be used for investing purposes).

Invest in alternatives as well as stocks

The 1% don't just invest in stocks and bonds. We aim to offer risk-managed portfolios of wider alternatives and private wealth features.

Please remember, investing should be viewed as longer term. Your capital is at risk - the value of investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you put in.
