Ex-Saltus Partners' Dan Kemp, Sam Liddle, former MAM fund manager, and Clive Hale, Skandia's former CIO, are joining forces to launch an investment consultancy for advisers seeking to get their post-RDR propositions in shape.
Liddle, Kemp and Hale, have set up Albemarle Street Partners (ASP), an investment consultancy offering advisers and other financial services firms, including fund management companies, advice on how to improve their investment propositions by providing expert specialist advice on the management of model portfolios, funds of funds, risk graded multi-asset funds and private client portfolios.
They will also provide due diligence, both qualitative and quantitative, on fund management investment processes.
Hale, who has over 30 years experience' in the investment management industry with stints at Towry and VFTB Consultants, noted Albemarle Street Partners had been formed to help advisers 'struggling through the RDR maze', alongside offering fund management companies advice on new fund launches, marketing and due diligence processes.
Liddle added: 'ASP has been designed to provide IFAs with all the benefits of an in-house investment team at a fraction of the cost.'
Former Wealth Manager cover star Kemp (pictured), meanwhile, left Saltus, back in July of this year, while Liddle left MAM Funds back in February to concentrate on the smartphone apps business which he established last year.
