With a background in providing quality investment advice and researching investment opportunities, Alex Hayward tailors the Investment Committee’s views and recommendations to his client’s individual circumstances, goals and risk profile.

“They are continually searching the world for new investment opportunities – I believe that is one of the great benefits of the Investment Committee,” he says. 

Alex enjoys interacting with clients, discussing investment opportunities and the impact of global issues on their portfolios, as well as analysing data and trends. 

“Once you are comfortable with the fundamentals it is important to realise that investments are long-sighted and you have to be prepared to invest for the long term,” he says.
