HNW Wealth Managers

Promoted to portfolio director in March 2017 after ten years at GAM, Arun Shetty looks after clients from HNWs to trusts and pension funds, managing a book just shy of $400 million. Shetty, a member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment, loves the combination of markets and human contact. ‘You can get a diversification of risk and have a much more secure diversified portfolio geared to an individual than you can by buying individual funds as a stockbroker,’ he says. The slowdown in China, a fall in equity markets, Brexit and the US election have made life tough. ‘Pre-Brexit, a number of clients wanted to liquidate their portfolios,’ says Shetty, ‘whereas it made sense to ride the waves.’
