How we manage your money

At Saltus, investing is at the heart of what we do. We’ve been successfully growing our clients’ wealth for 15 years.

Our founders have each been working in investments for over 25 years and have wide experience across all asset classes, particularly alternative investment strategies. Over the years, our London-based, award-winning investment team has grown and today, they still work exclusively on managing our clients’ portfolios.

Delivering value the Saltus way


We know that price and value are different things, so how does that apply to investing with Saltus?

Well, we know that you want the best returns we can generate, after fees and costs, within your risk budget. So if we invest in something where the costs are higher but it provides extra returns or less risk, then you’re happy.
