Our core expertise is structuring tailor-made portfolios with the aim to maximise returns through traditional and alternative investments. At its heart, this entails a commitment to capital preservation, but we are entrepreneurial and nimble, seeking out new asset classes that can deliver value. We do not shy away from complex ownership and asset structures, and have deep restructuring experience. We manage a number of funds and strategies across Credit, Equity (including activist-owned strategic stakes) and Alternatives, such as the WMG Photography Fund and Collectable Car Fund investments.



We take time to understand our clients’ attitudes to risk and construct portfolios accordingly, with a dedicated focus on disciplined risk management. Our Fund Management team has full back office and execution capability and also supports our Wealth Management clients with their portfolio management services.

Equities

The current focus of WMG's equity trading offering is centred around UK mid-cap, pan-European special situations and global opportunities in the natural resources space. The Equity team has been with WMG since inception and has worked together for over 15 years.


Fixed Income & Global Opportunities Fund

WMG’s fixed income trading is predominantly active in global government and corporate bond markets. The team seeks to generate exceptional returns with a bias to liquidity. The Fixed Income trading team, on average, has in excess of twenty years’ experience trading fixed income globally and has worked together for a long time.

The WMG Global Opportunities Fund is a private open-ended investment company incorporated under the laws of the Isle of Man.  The fund’s main focus is to generate income from capital appreciation by investing in global fixed income markets with a concentration on liquidity and high turnover trading using our proprietary systematic approach.

The fund seeks to generate additional returns via special situation investment opportunities across multiple asset classes.
