Tier One Capital Continues its Expansion with Dual Office Openings
Posted on the 23 January 2018
Newcastle-based wealth management firm, Tier One Capital Ltd, has continued its expansion plans with the launch of prestigious new offices in Mayfair, London and Lausanne, Switzerland.
Tier One Capital, which specialises in private client, corporate and charitable wealth management, is opening offices at the heart of Mayfair in Hill Street and in the centre of Lausanne, near Geneva in Switzerland, to facilitate bespoke, and exclusive, access to further services and opportunities for its investors.
The new offices will provide a base in both the UK and Swiss financial markets and will complement its established North East-based operations and workforce.
The Mayfair office, ideally located within London’s private equity sector, will allow Tier One Capital to secure new investment opportunities and further capital flows for its highly successful Private Funding Circles, which have recently posted a fourth consecutive year of delivering an 8% plus annual yield for clients with a 100% track record across all projects.
The Swiss office, which is Tier One Capital’s first international location, is situated close to Switzerland’s economic heart of Geneva and will act as an investment management hub under the stewardship of Chief Investment Officer Tristan de Gabiole.
Jess Swindells, Managing Director of Tier One Capital, said: “These are very exciting times for Tier One Capital as we expand our footprint to London and Lausanne. These strategically well placed locations will provide us with additional opportunities to expand and diversify our portfolio and client base, as well as allowing us to attract further high quality team members.
“We’ve pleasingly had a very successful 2017 on the investment performance front at the same time as Tier One Capital continues to build out a superb platform for long term success.
“It is vitally important that we sensibly build on the current momentum to create as productive a platform for future growth as possible and continue to generate an even bigger market presence, both nationally and internationally. This will allow our North East clients to gain unrivalled local access to bespoke investment and lending opportunities from further afield.
“There are a lot of important regulatory changes currently happening and forthcoming in the industry and we ideally need to remain ahead of these rather than simply in line with them. “
Chief Investment Officer, Tristan de Gabiole, who will lead the office in Switzerland, said, “The Lausanne office is in an excellent location to attract high quality team members and we are excited to build the business into what we are confident will grow into a hugely important part of the growing Tier One Capital proposition and brand.
“There are also high quality Swiss finance and investment operations in Newcastle, which will allow us to provide the opportunity to reverse that trend and take the best of the North East England’s finance and investment to Switzerland.”
