‘Being a wealth manager is a bit like being a psychiatrist with money,’ says James Horniman, a partner and portfolio manager at James Hambro since 2013. An old hand, he has been in fund management for a quarter of a century. ‘People rely on discretionary managers so that they can get on with playing golf or writing books while we position their portfolios and their money,’ he explains. Political changes and ever rising inflation have been making the wealth manager’s job more difficult and will only continue to do so: ‘We have to hold hands more,’ Horniman says, ‘and explain what long term investment is all about. It means clients have to take more risks to get the return that they want and we’re here to support them.’
