The Investment Team

Hansa Capital Partners LLP is the portfolio manager for Hansa Investment Company Limited. Its investment team is headed by Alec Letchfield and William Salomon, both bringing a wealth of experience to managing the Hansa portfolio.

Alec Letchfield joined Hansa Capital Partners as Chief Investment Officer in September 2013. Previously he worked at HSBC where, as CIO for Wealth and Multi-Asset, he was instrumental in the development of the multi-asset class offering for private clients. This highly diverse range of solutions generated excellent investment performance and industry-leading asset growth. Previously he headed up the UK equity team, managing a range of high conviction portfolios.

William Salomon is senior partner at Hansa Capital Partners and has extensive knowledge of all aspects of private client and strategic fund investment business. In the 1990s, William was responsible for developing Finsbury Asset Management and the Finsbury range of funds until it was taken over in 1995 by Rea Brothers Group (the family’s bank, of which he eventually became Chairman until the bank’s sale to Close Brothers).

William, along with other Salomon family members, has a significant beneficial ownership in Hansa Investment Company Limited. This provides a great deal of stability and allows for a longer-term investment view.
