When choosing a Wealth Manager, perhaps the most important consideration is who is looking after your money.
Whitechurch operates a team-based approach to investment management. This ensures objectivity and consistency across all client portfolios.
At the same time having a small, focused team with an emphasis on accountability, allows individuals freedom to make key investment decisions. Each investment strategy has named investment managers, with back up managers, who will be familiar with the strategy.
Our Discretionary Management Services provide the opportunity for personal wealth to be managed, via a financial adviser, by our fully qualified investment team who will take full responsibility for the construction, active management and administration of your investment portfolio.
With over 30 years’ of wealth management experience, we understand the challenges advisers face in managing their client base and the concerns they may have about what will happen to their clients when they retire or exit the industry. We launched Adviser Retirement Options to extend the support we have provided over the years, and offer a range of solutions which can be beneficial to both advisers and their clients.
We are seeing increasing interest in Ethical and Sustainable & Responsible Investment (SRI) from clients and many advisers as well as growing media interest in such issues which both reflect and stimulate public interest. We can offer a range of ethical solutions; from model portfolios with predefined requirements (to fit the needs of most investors); up to bespoke solutions for private individuals, charities and trusts.
"My clients' money never sleeps, it's a living item that needs daily care and attention, and Whitechurch provides this service.

"Our Company has over 50 years of Investment expertise, 8 years ago we realised we required the expertise of a Discretionary Investment Company, partly due to the complexity of market conditions and a more sophisticated client base. We undertook detailed research to ensure we made the right choice of Discretionary Management for our clients. We chose Whitechurch Securities Ltd and following a 5 year successful relationship with them, we would be happy to recommend their services without hesitation to any client needing discretionary investment management."Mr CM & Mr PB - Derby
