Who we are

IronBright Investment Management Limited was launched on 2 May 2017 by financial planners for financial planners to provide a sensibly priced, well diversified, managed portfolio service to private clients. IronBright does not deal with private investors directly.

The financial planners behind IronBright are Damien Rylett, Steve Brady, David Buchan and Peter Hill, the Directors of Bristol-based financial planning firm, Brunel Capital Partners.

IronBright came into being when it became obvious that other financial planning firms could benefit from and share its service. Also when Brunel’s clients suggested, through a qualitative survey, that its investment philosophy and process should be more widely spread.

Once clients have a long-term personal financial plan in place, the IronBright philosophy is to provide a proven, globally diversified way of investing.

This is done through sensibly priced, risk managed and well balanced portfolios which meet individual client needs.

The IronBright investment philosophy follows three guiding principles:

Belief in the future, patience and discipline.

We are optimistic and believe in long-term progress. Capital Markets work. They are far from perfect but they do a good job of fairly pricing all available information and investor expectations about publicly traded securities. Once money is invested, patience is needed with an eye on the long term rather than what markets are doing today; and discipline, delivered through careful asset allocation, diversification and regular rebalancing of asset allocations to keep portfolios in line with the course set.
