P-Solve to rebrand to River and Mercantile Solutions
P-Solve, the specialist investment consultant and fiduciary manager, and part of the River and Mercantile Group, has announced that it intends to reposition its brand to River and Mercantile Solutions from 1 July 2018.
The alignment of a consistent brand across the River and Mercantile Group reflects the increasing degree to which the macro thinking across the business is used to develop the investment views and advice for all the Group’s clients.
The announcement was made today at P-Solve’s Annual Investment Conference in London, attended by over 100 clients. Ajeet Manjrekar, co-head of P-Solve, said: “Increasingly the challenges that we are seeking to solve for clients are becoming much more than just being in a particular asset class versus another. Instead, it is more about positioning within that asset class, whether it be geography, industry sector or implementation style that will ensure smooth progress towards their goals.
“We are drawing upon the insight of all our investment capabilities to develop our investment thinking, and that thinking is becoming far more granular. Depth of investment market expertise is becoming much more important.”
Ross Leach, co-head of P-Solve, added that the business’s approach has always been to start with identifying the client need to ensure common ground on their objectives before providing advice. “Our focus on providing a solution rather than a product has led to very strong and consistent client satisfaction feedback,” he said. “We put our clients first and focus on what outcome they need. We have great investment insight across our Group that helps us bring industry-leading investment strategies to clients; this rebrand is intended to reflect that breadth of expertise.”
River and Mercantile Solutions will continue to sit alongside the other distinct business divisions within the Group: River and Mercantile Asset Management and River and Mercantile Derivatives.
