Why charities choose James Hambro & Partners

Many charities face a challenge finding the right partner to manage their investment portfolios, often citing limited access to those accountable for performance, poor administration, lack of transparency and pooled funds replacing tailor-made portfolios.

The value of your investments and the income received from them can fall as well as rise. You may not get back the amount you invested.
