Why Colchester?

Colchester is founded on a belief that asset management is best performed in a singular focus firm, such as ours, that puts the interests of our clients at the centre of everything we do. We believe that this delivers superior returns to our clients, avoids potential conflicts of interest, and aligns our interests with those of our clients. Colchester is underpinned by strong moral and ethical standards, a deeply engrained investment process, and a structure that provides the best possible chance of success. We believe that clarity of thought and vision, combined with a relentless drive for excellence, will deliver the best returns for our clients and help them achieve their objectives.

We view our clients as partners and believe that openness and transparency is paramount in building and developing the trust that they have bestowed upon us. These values and principles are embedded in our DNA, and guide us in all our interactions with, and decisions made on behalf of our clients.

At Colchester we work very hard to bring the right people on board, create the right environment for success and invest in the development of each individual.

Diversity & Inclusion

Colchester is built on our core values which form the foundations of our culture and underpin everything we do. Being an inclusive employer with a diverse workforce is a fundamental part of how we operate as an organisation. Our policies are designed to promote our values and protect our employees. We believe that every one of our employees, clients and stakeholders bring something different to the table and those differences are something to be valued.

We actively promote integrity, trust and humility, all of which form part of our core values. We understand that being good at what we do takes collaboration, teamwork and respect for each other and we work hard to build this into our inclusion efforts. Fostering this inclusive culture is crucial to our employees and clients who are at the heart of everything we do.

The Diversity Project is a cross-company initiative championing a truly diverse and inclusive UK investment and savings industry with the right talent to deliver the best possible financial outcomes for our clients, to reflect the society we serve and ultimately build more sustainable businesses. As a member firm, Colchester strongly believe in this mission and is proud to be a part of the change.
