James Hambro’s head of investments and portfolio management John Langrish is celebrating 30 years in wealth management this year. ‘I’ve been around the clock a few times,’ he says. ‘I’ve woken up at 5:30 every morning for the last 30 years. You’ve got to love the job.’ Langrish inspires loyalty — his largest client, a family worth north of £50 million with whom he started working in 1999, has moved firms with him twice. ‘It started off with just Lord and Lady,’ he says. ‘And now I’m dealing with 30 people at the family summits.’ The industry has changed drastically since the Eighties. ‘I didn’t even have a computer on my desk then, whereas now we’re subsumed with information,’ he says.
