Matrix launches private client business

Matrix Group has announced the launch of a new investment management arm for the high net worth clients.

Matrix Investment Management launches following the recruitment of the Ansbacher Investment Management team of chief investment officer Mike Hollings, Chris Woods, Neil Williams and Zoe Lito.

In addition to the high net worth, MIM will also target charities and smaller institutions by offering an unconstrained approach to portfolio construction, targeting risk adjusted absolute returns and different market cycles.

The group will in invest on a top/down macro view and will target key themes for growth, and will look to get exposure to those themes across all available asset classes.

Matrix Investment Management chairman Charles Good says: “We are delighted to have been successful in attracting a team of this high calibre to launch our Private Client investment management and Charities business. We share the view that the wholesale use of index based benchmarks, so very prevalent throughout the private client investment management industry today, is not an appropriate way to assess the quality and consistency of returns generated by a manager, a belief which recent unprecedented events in global markets only helps to reinforce.”
