Nicola Barber, who joined James Hambro in 2012, explains to Spear’s that plans are in place to double the bank’s AuM in the next three to four years. ‘It comes down to the belief that you can offer a boutique service and a high-quality investment process with conviction and passion,’ says the head of charities, pointing to a changing scene where larger investment houses are merging, leaving clients feeling uncertain. Although Hambro is growing, Barber is emphatic that its ethos is to deliver a bespoke service by limiting the number of clients per manager. ‘As a client I want to know who is managing my money —I want to be able to pick up the phone to them directly,’ she says.
