"We followed James to Ridgeway as we were very satisfied with the performance of the portfolio he managed at Rathbones. With increased flexibility and independence of thought, at Ridgeway I expect this to continue."
"I have chosen Ridgeway Investment Management for what I believe is the most important aspect of a financial relationship: trust. James has been professional, compassionate, and efficient through some very difficult times for my family during the last 12 years. I am excited to join such a young, vibrant and promising company. I only hope that James will be there to look after my children and my financial investments for many years to come."
"I trust both James Maltin's probity and acumen. I feel I know where I am with him and believe a smaller firm will have more time to know the needs of the clients."
"To entrust all of one's savings and investments into the care of one person is a very personal matter. Our long association with James Maltin has given us confidence in his personal commitment to us. Consequently, when the opportunity arose, we had no hesitation in renewing that association."
Ridgeway is different to most money management firms most obviously by being based outside of London. To do better than average (to ‘beat the market’), one must invest differently from the herd. Removing ourselves from their influence is a good start.
Unlike the majority of our peers, who are either subsidiaries of large financial institutions or are publicly listed and therefore owned by external shareholders, Ridgeway enjoys complete freedom to create bespoke investment strategies, whilst being supported by one of the world’s largest financial institutions. The result is a very personal service, backed by impeccable quality. We discuss your requirements and together decide which investment strategy is most suitable for you. This means that our attention is focussed exclusively on you. We want to make money for you, seek to protect your capital and secure your financial wellbeing. We want to serve you and your family for many, many years, and take great pride in cementing relationships through generations.
What we seek is compounding – maximising the rate at which we grow your capital consistently over time, and reinvesting the vast majority of that growth. We place a great deal of emphasis on minimising the total costs of investing, for this is vital if one is to achieve a satisfactory compound rate of return. Whilst many in the industry charge a performance fee, we favour a simple charge and believe this is more advantageous to our clients. It ensures our interests are aligned.
In the early days of our industry there may have been many firms like Ridgeway, today there are precious few. If you would like to join us, please get in touch.
