JH&P opens a Southwest office
James Hambro & Partners (JH&P) is expanding its regional offering by opening an office in Bristol to service clients in the Southwest of England. This will be JH&P’s third regional office after the opening of Leeds in 2020 and Edinburgh in 2021. This demonstrates a continued drive to unlock regional opportunities across the country for JH&P, which has its headquarters on London’s Pall Mall.
CEO Andy Steel said: “We have made strong progress in our other regional offices and it is now time to expand our footprint in the Southwest, which has been an ambition for some time.”
James Horniman, portfolio manager, partner and previous head of Professional Adviser Services, has been asked to head up the office which is opening in Bristol’s Temple Quay. He will be supported by Ben Swarbrick and Patrick Trueman.
JH&P is also delighted to announce that Austen Speakman will be joining the business in due course as part of the build out of the Southwestern office. Austen was previously a senior investment director at Brooks Macdonald and Head of the Cheltenham office. Austen brings a wealth of investment management experience as well as a strong reputation in the professional adviser arena in the region.
Steel added:” We’ve been looking to expand in the Southwest for some time, but it isn’t just about the region. We need to ensure we attract the right calibre of individual who share similar values – I strongly believe Austen will be an excellent cultural fit.”
Horniman said: ”We are very excited about opening an office in such a vibrant and flourishing part of the country. We will be looking to recruit other experienced professionals and support teams over time but, with the help of colleagues from London and our other regional offices, we are capable of offering a full range of services from the start.”

The value of an investment and the income from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount invested.
