The Schroder Group was founded in 1804 and it has been quoted on the London Stock Exchange since 1959; the Schroders family controls 48% of the voting capital. This stability of ownership allows the Board to take a long-term view when setting strategy. By being solely focused on asset management and not having an investment or commercial bank as a parent, we have no potentially conflicting or distracting business interests and can concentrate on serving the needs of our clients. What differentiates as a wealth manager is that we are very active in charity and foundation sector as we are the largest manager of charity assets in the UK. More importantly, we believe that very few wealth management firms can draw on the expertise of an equivalent investment resource, with the expertise of the Group’s 700+ investment professionals spread across 27 countries.
We are a global business that’s managed locally. This allows us to always keep our clients’ needs at the heart of everything we do. For over two centuries and more than seven generations we’ve grown and developed our expertise in tandem with our clients’ needs and interests.
