Gresham House Overview and Background:

Gresham House plc (GHE.LN) is a London Stock Exchange-quoted specialist asset manager providing funds, direct investments and tailored investment solutions, including co-investment, across a range of differentiated alternative investment strategies. We focus on five areas of alternative investments - Forestry, New Energy, Housing and Infrastructure, Public and Private Equity - across two divisions, Real Assets and Strategic Equity.

As of 31 December 2019, the firm manages £2.8bn in assets under management on behalf of institutions, family offices, high-net-worth individuals, charities, endowments and private individuals with the objective of helping them achieve their financial goals. The Group’s aim is to build a leading specialist alternative asset management firm that delivers long-term value to shareholders and clients through superior and attractive returns underpinned by long-term alignment.

Gresham House is committed to operating responsibly and sustainably and believes taking the long view in delivering sustainable investment solutions will continue to be a growing factor in the strength of our market positioning. Investments and co-investments are managed through our FCA-regulated investment management platform, Gresham House Asset Management Limited.

Gresham House focus is currently solely on opportunities within the United Kingdom. Therefore, based on the MSCI classification our focus is 100% in developed markets. However, there are ambitions to expand the Forestry proposition on an International basis in 2020 and we would expect this breakdown to have evolved by the time of our next UN PRI Reporting submission in 2021.
