A new Hornby based investment management company is priding itself on “a truly personalised service” for its clients.

Gore Browne Investment Management opened at Strands Barn in May, providing discretionary portfolio management services that are specifically focussed on private clients, Trusts and charities.

Their services are provided either directly to clients or via their professional advisers.

Hugo Pring, Adrian Williams and Rachel Tilburn, who all previously worked at Sanlam Private Investments (formerly Border Asset Management) in Kirkby Lonsdale, said they were already finding that new clients are approaching them.

Simon James, Chief Executive Officer of GBIM, said: “We are delighted to expand the geographical coverage of our business with individuals who, like us, believe in providing clients with a truly personalised service without any outside influences on investment decisions.

“We charge a competitive fee, but unlike many other firms we do not supplement our income with commission charges on transactions, so clients know exactly what they are paying.

“We are a small company when compared with the majority of our competitors, and this appeals to many clients who fear that larger companies lose the personal touch.”

GBIM are the latest tenants of Strands Barn, where they join Advanced Nutrition, who provide nutritional and management solutions to dairy farmers and Meiring Chartered Certified Accountants in this modern office development in a rural setting.

Hugo Pring of GBIM said: “we are so pleased to have found an office which is such a pleasant working environment and which is easily accessible for clients without the traffic and parking issues you find in most towns.”
