Our Board of Advice
The purpose of our Board of Advice is to support the continued development of the firm and its key staff.
The membership of the board gives a broad network for the sharing of expertise and experience.
Although the board acts in an informal manner (i.e. the members are neither shareholders nor directors of the company) its emphasis is on creating a structured process for the discussion of strategic, governance and investment issues.
