Rootstock Investment Management is a focused investment management firm.

  • We only have one investment view, which is executed consistently across our investment mandates.
  • We hold no more than 20 investments.
  • We focus exclusively on a select number of ultra-high-net-worth clients and family offices.

We are long-term investors. Our investment decisions reflect the delicate balance of sustainably growing our clients' wealth whilst aiming to protect our clients from the permanent loss of capital through active asset allocation. The continued growth of our clients' wealth, not the firm's assets, is our sole purpose.

We are substantially invested alongside our clients. We pay the same fees as our clients. Investment performance is rewarded through the growth in our own investments in the Rootstock fund.

Integrity, transparency and accountability are the cornerstones of our business. Simplicity and ease define our business and we endeavour to make your dealings with us a hassle-free and pleasant experience.

Our business is built on long-term relationships. We have an exclusive clientele and intend to keep it that way. We engage our clients one at a time. Our service is individually tailored, discreet and confidential. We keep our affairs clear, concise and uncomplicated.

We invite prospective clients that share our approach and time horizon to investments. Prospective clients are likely to be family offices and high net worth individuals.

Should you fit our client profile, kindly contact us.
