Independent and owner-managed, Artemis opened for business in 1997. Its aim was, and still is, exemplary investment performance and client service. All Artemis’ staff share these two precepts – and the same flair and enthusiasm for fund management. The firm now manages some £22.3 billion* across a range of funds, two investment trusts, a venture capital trust and both pooled and segregated institutional portfolios.

Our managers invest in their own and their colleagues’ funds. This has been a basic tenet of the Artemis approach since the firm started. It means that interests of our fund managers are directly aligned with those of our investors.

With stocks of 7.5 million bottles representing some five years’ supply, Pol Roger remains one of the smaller of the great Champagne houses and uncompromising in its refusal to release wines until they are fully mature.

Elliot Brown

Official Timekeeper


Years of extreme sports experience and a desire to build the worlds toughest watches was the catalyst for Elliot and Brown to follow their hearts and create a range of watches like no other.  Handsome enough to covet, tough enough to withstand the harshest environment yet affordable enough to wear every day.

It’s not revolution, more evolution with every component, every detail refined, strengthened and honed. It’s not hard to see why they’ve won multiple awards and are fast becoming the mariner’s go-to choice. Designed to take the sort of punishment our endurance sailors dish out every day, yet look smart with a best shirt in the evening.
