1. Our clients are increasingly confident in our proposition

The amount of money we hold for our clients grew to £17.9 billion in our half-year financial results – up £2.2 billion on the first half of 2016.

2. We help you invest in a way that suits you

When it comes to how you invest, we offer a range of options tailored to your needs. If you want detailed advice from our experts or feel comfortable making your own investment decisions online, we can provide the right approach. The value of investments can, of course, go down as well as up though, so there is always a risk that you may get back less than you put in.

3. Our portfolios and funds perform well

Our three core Tailored Portfolio Service strategies are currently top quartile over three years in sterling portfolios. It’s always worth remembering, though, that past performance should not be relied upon as a guide to future performance.

4. We stick to our principles

We firmly follow our agreed investment principles – our roadmap for managing your investments. Those principles are; macro-informed asset allocation, diversification, quality, value and selectively contrarian and patience.

5. It’s a team effort

We don’t have any one person making all the decisions on where to invest your money. We have a team of experts with different backgrounds, different experiences and different perspectives. All their well-informed opinions are aggregated into a robust, transparent process that informs every investment decision.

6. We have over three centuries of experience

We have been looking after our clients’ money for 325 years. Our rich history began in 1692 when John Campbell set up shop as a goldsmith on the Strand in London. As well as supplying jewellery and other gold and silver items, Campbell offered a banking service – discounting bills, making loans and taking deposits. 

From these humble beginnings we grew to become the world’s best-known private bank, renowned for our first-class services.
