Our Strategies

Directly Invested Portfolios

With a directly invested portfolio, Aubrey will research, analyse, and invest in individual company shares. We offer exposure to attractive growing and innovative businesses selected globally. These portfolios can be invested standalone, or as part of a broader multi-asset portfolio.

Assets can be selected based on their sustainability or ethical criteria and we also provide options to receive Inheritance Tax Benefits (IHT).
