This is a role that requires an individual who has a strong financial regulation background and understands the importance of accuracy and detail. The individual will also need to be an effective communicator that can instil a sense of team spirit and togetherness.

London & Capital opened its doors in 1986, five weeks after the deregulation of the London financial markets on October 27th 1986 – known as ‘Big Bang’. The new environment allowed for a new type of wealth manager: We helped pioneer an approach where wealth managers worked directly with investors, with their aims and goals in mind, rather than one where middle-men took a chunk of investor returns.
