Our Management Team

Jason Cross

Founder and Chief Executive

Jason started his career in financial services in 1987 with London based Commodity Broker Rudolf Wolff. In 1992 he formed his first private client advisory business in association with Norwich Union based in Cambridge. In 1994 this tie was ended as Jason decided his, and his firms, future was as an Independent Financial Adviser and he formed SCR Finance (IFA) Ltd. He grew SCR and remained its CEO until its sale to a major Financial Services provider in 2000. In 2002 he founded Throgmorton Asset Management Ltd, which by 2007 was responsible for over 370 million pounds of clients assets. In 2007 Jason led the sale of Throgmorton Asset Management Ltd to ARC Plc, a London based fund management business. He founded Throgmorton Corporate Services Ltd in 2003 and now focuses all of his time on private client wealth management here, having disposed of his interest in ARC Plc.
