HLI was established in 2000 by Robert Hutchinson and Ian Lilley after working together at Schroder Investment Management Ltd for many years.
The company is wholly owned by its principals and is independent. It occupies a unique position on the investment spectrum between traditional fund managers and hedge funds.
We are low risk absolute return fund managers. Investment portfolios are balanced. They are diversified across regions, asset classes and instruments and are highly risk controlled. We add value through creative thinking, innovative sourcing of information, discipline and efficiency and we apply these to individual clients on a highly tailored basis.
Our regulatory umbrella business is original and provides an invaluable service to new investment companies.
Formerly Joint Managing Director of Schroder Investment Management (International) Ltd, Robert has responsibility for client portfolios. He determines investment strategy for diversified accounts across asset classes and selects equities.
Mike qualified as a chartered management accountant prior to joining Schroder Investment Management Ltd in 1992 where he was a director of operations. Mike has responsibility over regulatory incubatees.
We provide an impartial layer between investors and all other service providers. We select our counterparties solely on our appraisal of their services and prices.
Our only sources of income are investment management and advisory fees for fund management and a fixed pre-agreed fee for regulatory umbrella services.
We have a high duty of care towards clients.
