History


Founded in 1996 by Angus Murray, a former President of Macquarie Bank USA Inc. and Co-Head of the International Equity Department of NatWest Markets USA, Castlestone Management began managing assets as a European Family Office in 1997. Their investment philosophy is based on the University Endowment strategy and influences the way they manage money for their clients. They continue to develop their investment expertise by employing highly qualified Investment Professionals and today operate across five continents.


Clients


Their funds are available to financial intermediaries and their clients. Castlestone Management have over 400 partners around the world who understand and allocate to their funds. Castlestone's funds are not for distribution in the USA. Castlestone Management endorses clients' use of financial intermediaries to understand their individual risk profile so as to assess the appropriateness of their funds to their investment portfolio.


Diversity

Castlestone Management believe that a diversified portfolio containing investments such as commodities and real assets, plus traditional assets like stocks and bonds are most likely to produce the best returns with less risk. Diversity encompasses investments in gold, precious metals, equities in countries such as those in the Next 11 fund, and even assets such as water, alternative energy and art.


Experience & strategy

Castlestone Management continue to employ the highest quality Investment Professionals and Analysts who have the skill set to manage and develop their funds. Their Investment Professionals' experience gives them the ability to have insight into the impact of market conditions on fund performance and therefore the effect on wealth creation. Their investment philosophy is influenced by the long term approach taken by University Endowments. They believe this philosophy should enable their funds to complement any investors' portfolio.


Transparency

Their intermediaries and their clients receive monthly performance updates and regular research reports. Castlestone host seminars and events designed to clarify the markets, our funds and client portfolios. This level of transparency creates maximum understanding and supports informed investment decision making.


Independent oversight

Castlestone Management fully endorses independent oversight of the operations of the business. Their internal processes, procedures and compliance department are monitored by external parties, including an independent Administrator and Custodian. In addition, they appoint independent Directors to their funds which are externally audited.

Whether the client's target is long term stability, or targeted exposure to certain asset classes, Castlestone Management delivers precisely what intermediaries and clients demand.
