Victoria Private Investment Office targets wider market
London-based Victoria Private Investment Office (previously Victoria Capital) is to target a wider high net worth client base following the appointment of Heather Maizels, who joins as managing director.
The firm began in 2003 with a business established to manage the wealth of the Scanlon family, one of the leading names behind the growth of the Fosters brewing business.
Following a successful management buyout founders Phillip Russell and Inno van den Berg recognised a growing need for personal service with investment advice which is not only objective and informed, but also impartial.
The firm has no asset bias and the co-founders have expertise across all asset classes including currencies. Specific investment analysis and advice is offered to clients looking to take significant stakes in unquoted companies. For professional and fiduciary clients, including families, trustees and charities, the firm provides managed accounts which give access to institutional pricing.
Maizels (pictured), a barrister, with a MA in Law from Girton College, Cambridge University, began her wealth management career at Barclays. She built the private banking business from scratch, taking it into Barclays Wealth where she was a member of the Advisory Board, championing family philanthropy, the wider investment needs of women and ArtWealth services for collectors.
