Our focus on people doesn’t end with you.

We help clients improve the world in which we live

Here are the key individuals to support your journey.

Hailing from the North himself, Richard is very partial to Yorkshire and everything it brings to the world. He’s also a collector of minerals and follows the philosophy of Stoicism.

Sarah’s job enables her to indulge in two passions: financial markets and acting as a ‘guardian of the planet’ for future generations, investing in environmental and social solutions that generate both positive return and measurable positive impact on the planet.

Sarah is country bumpkin based in London, and she spends as much time as possible in the great outdoors with her wonderful dog. She has also completed a Half IronMan!
