Kleinwort Hambros is the result of an ambitious merger and is using that momentum to push for a bigger wealth management offering. At the core of this sits CIO Mouhammed Choukeir, who says it’s the best time to drive forward a more robust investment approach, with emphasis on a ‘star process rather than a star manager’. Clients can rest assured that their decisionmaking structures are deeply entrenched in the firm, and ‘not subject to any key person risk’. He explains that clients ‘have great appreciation for an approach driven by scrupulous investment beliefs, as opposed to subjective judgement’. The former Morgan Stanley multi-asset head adds that the firm’s approach is always ‘rooted in financial evidence’.
