Tom Sheridan, Chief Executive Officer, Seven Investment Management (7IM) said:

“After a period of rapid expansion, with assets under management growing each year, we closed 2016 in a strong position to move forward. Platform assets under management were up 24% on the previous year. We also saw client numbers grow by 7%, adding 1,173 new accounts - a testament to our award winning service. Assets under management for our discretionary fund management service also continued to grow. Our retirement from running institutional money meant a loss of £340m assets. Continuing our product enhancements, 2016 also saw the relaunch of the 7IM fund range based in Dublin, which are now marketed under the banner of the 7IM Dublin Funds.

“We continue to invest in technology in a way that puts advisers and investors firmly in the driving seat. Last year, we increased our annual ongoing expenditure by £2.5m on platform and IT development and during 2016, we released ‘My Future’, a cashflow modelling tool for our award winning app, 7IMagine, allowing investors and planners to plan for long term financial goals. We are excited about the continued enhancements planned for 2017. Caledonia Investments, our shareholder since 2015, continues to be a huge supporter, with a long term approach to managing money that entirely matches our own.”     

Tom Sheridan continued: “Fifteen years since our launch, we remain true to our original premise of managing money, and risk, to ‘expected returns’ over the medium to long term.  It’s a strategy which we have delivered on, with asset allocation behind everything we do, and our ability to manage currency risk also proving helpful. Our multi asset, global approach, blending both active and passive strategies, continues to help us manage the risk–reward trade off at a time when geopolitical tensions make a ‘risk off’ strategy, for us, currently more attractive.”
