Markets have been absolutely extraordinary,’ Patrick Smiley says of the past year. ‘There’s been no shortage of headlines.’ Smiley has a calming manner about him, even when he explains the most granular details of global markets. After painting a very comprehensive picture of US bonds, the suddenly competitive cash and unusually high company margins, he adds: ‘Fundamentally, the market really needs to work out what the riskfree return means, because everything else will be priced off that.’ The affable Scot is proud of the strong collegiate rapport across the board, which results in a high staff retention rate: ‘We’re well placed to wear that badge called “trusted adviser” reasonably well.’
