An investment process that has evolved through different economic cycles driven by an experienced team of professionals and backed up by an award-winning track record.
Stenham's origins date back to 1901 when Osias Stenham founded the company to act as buying agents for wholesale importers C Saloman of Central Southern Africa. Stenham grew into a confirming house providing documentary credit facilities and trade finance to a wider group of clients in Africa.
During the 1970's Stenham expanded its activities into a multi-family office, offering trust services, wealth management and corporate finance/private equity services.
With the growth of the alternatives fund industry in the 1980s, Stenham evolved its wealth management business into an investment manager specialising in bespoke multi-manager absolute return portfolios.
