We are an innovative and well-established single-family office with a focus on ultra long term growth and preservation. We pride ourselves on our simple straightforward approach with our principle and founder, Mark Hawthorn, retaining an active day to day role as CEO of the larger group businesses.
Our primary focus is within the real estate sector where we have a long and successful track record, including throughout the downturn of the late 2000’s. We do not follow the crowds, preferring to adopt a more contrarian approach which has led to us benefitting from many new areas of opportunity long before the wider market.
We remain open to proposals of all types, with our simple criteria being there is a favourable risk/reward balance and we can add value over and above any financial investment.
Naturally we have independent websites and teams for our group businesses, the two largest and most active are listed below with a brief overview of their activities.
