One of the most respected and experienced wealth management professionals in the UK, Guy Paterson is a seasoned expert who has been navigating the financial markets for more than 25 years. ‘The key thing is to avoid shocks,’ he tells Spear’s. ‘In the final quarter of 2018, the critical thing was to keep clients confident so that they didn’t sell off. Then the defining feature of the first quarter of this year was making very, very strong returns for clients who had remained fully invested.’ Based in London, Jersey and Geneva, Stanhope Capital takes an innovative approach that has seen it grow considerably in recent years, not only in AuM but also in stature and reputation, to now resemble an investment world darling looking after established institutions and charities as well as client families. While Paterson maintains that a savvy investor’s reaction to a market fall should be ‘Is there opportunity to invest more?’, he also believes the risk of a Corbyn government shouldn’t be underestimated. ‘When everything’s looking great, there’s always unseen risk, and the job of a wealth manager is to alert clients to that.’ Away from work he devotes time to gardening and country pursuits. ‘I often escape to our home in the country, where I’m surrounded by daughters and dogs, basically,’ he says. is a seasoned expert who has been navigating the financial markets for more than 25 years. ‘The key thing is to avoid shocks,’ he tells Spear’s. ‘In the final quarter of 2018, the critical thing was to keep clients confident so that they didn’t sell off.
