Charity award win

James Hambro & Partners has won the Charity Times Boutique Investment Manager of the Year Awards for the fourth time in six years.

The award was made in a virtual event last night – the 21st year of the awards, which are widely respected by the charity sector as a guide of service excellence.

JH&P chairman and co-founder, Jamie Hambro said: “This is a remarkable achievement. To have been recognised again with this award in a strong field is testament to our outstanding investment offering for charities and the dedication of our team here.”

Hambro, who is Chairman of The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, one of the UK’s biggest charities, said: “Covid-19 has created a particularly challenging environment for charities – many have seen their incomes virtually dry up. Trustees wants to know that their investments are being well managed by a firm that understands their needs and by a team that understands the sector.”

Nicola Barber the Head of Charities at James Hambro & Partners said “I am genuinely thrilled that we have been recognised yet again as a leader in the sector. This has been a very volatile year in markets. We’ve worked particularly hard to maintain strong relationships with our charity clients to provide them with the confidence that their portfolios are in safe hands and being well managed.”

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. This may be partly the result of exchange rate fluctuations in investments which have an exposure to foreign currencies. You should be aware that past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Tax benefits may vary as a result of statutory changes and their value will depend on individual circumstances.

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.
