We employ over 70 staff across offices in Guernsey, South Africa, United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Singapore. With combined assets under management (AUM) of approximately GBP880m, our highly experienced investment management team has been investing MitonOptimal client money for over 16 years.

Scott Campbell, the Group’s Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer, initially established MitonOptimal in 2002. Today, focussing on our primary service offering of Discretionary Fund Management (DFM), Portfolio Management, Managed Model Portfolios and Institutional Asset Consulting services, we cater for a diverse spectrum of private clients, independent financial advisers (IFAs), Fiduciaries, family offices and Trustees/institutional clients around the globe.

In our role as Investment Managers, the common denominator across all of our products and services is Global Multi-Asset Management. Our investment philosophy is unashamedly simple, “diversification, through unconstrained global asset allocation, within an absolute mindset”, with the aim of achieving our clients’ objectives, through the management and control of risk. We are a closely knit team of professionals that recognise the importance of focus. That focus does not simply translate to our approach to investment management services; it also reflects our strong belief in offering our clients face to face, personalised relationships with their investment manager. We treat the client exactly how we would wish to be treated.
