Iain Tait, who heads the boutique firm’s private investment office, sees a parallel between London & Capital’s conservative investment approach and a party: ‘We’re a house that would much prefer to be leaving a little early than staying on late… and leaving with a bit of a hangover.’ This mantra is the reason the firm has seen steady asset growth of ten per cent, despite experiencing past ‘pockets’ of volatility. Aversion to big growth patterns is a lesson learnt during the collapse of Lehman Brothers, after which Tait pioneered a family office-like service for UHNWs that comes without the cost and administrative burden of a private advisory firm. He describes his clients as ‘complicated, time-poor, wealthy and enjoyable to work for’.
