Tony commenced his career as a financial adviser in 1984, and began managing funds in 1988. He has been managing investment funds continuously since then. He founded Wise Investment, now Wise Group, in 1992 to help people manage their investments and financial affairs. The company’s aim from the beginning has been to build relationships on understanding and trust, rather than selling products.
Tony specialises in managing investment portfolios and runs our TB Wise Multi-Asset Income and TB Wise Multi-Asset Growth funds as part of the Wise Funds subsidiary. Tony’s process begins with economic, market, fund and company analysis. Fund management for him is the process of putting ideas into action.
Tony has amassed a wealth of experience and qualifications, including an MA in History from Cambridge University and the Investment Management Certificate, as well as numerous financial advice qualifications.
Outside work, Tony enjoys walking, gardening, beekeeping, being part of a large family, and supporting charitable causes in the local community.
