    Pros

    Generally good people who aspire to give clients the investment experience they appreciate whilst doing the right thing.
    Generally a supportive and understanding culture.

    Cons

    A few political animals amongst the key decision makers sometimes means that legacy structures aren't challenged resulting in delay responding to market changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
