Our Story

Founded in September 2012, Brunel Capital Partners Limited has comprehensive, life-centred financial planning at the very heart of their approach. Helping clients to identify, achieve and maintain their desired lifestyle without fear of running out of money, and giving people confidence and clarity over where they are heading. This enables Brunel clients to live life to the full - to do more and give more.

Brunel wanted an investment solution that complemented the planning service it provided for clients.  For years, the investment management industry had complicated matters, often promising lots and delivering very little . High charges, poor performance, lack of transparency and complexity were all reasons why the directors of Brunel thought there had to be a better way. Investing should be simple after all.

After much searching and disappointment, Ironbright Investment Management was launched in May 2017. A service dedicated and perfectly tailored to financial planning.

Our portfolios can now be accessed on five different investment platforms and the range of portfolios on offer include our low cost passive options and a sustainable option for the more ethically conscious investor.

In 2020, we added an intuitive investment platform to give financial planning clients and investors alike the low-cost, straightforward and transparent package that they deserve.
