JO HAMBRO Investment Management (Johim), the wealth manager formerly owned by Credit Suisse, yesterday announced it was rebranding as Waverton Investment Management.
Johim, which was co-founded in 1986 by Richard Hambro, was originally named after Hambro’s father, Jocelyn Olaf Hambro.
The re-branding takes its name from the family home of the Hambro banking dynasty, Waverton, in Gloucestershire.
The Waverton name had already been in use on a number of the firm’s funds since 2004.
It comes after the business was sold by Credit Suisse last year to Somers Limited in a deal which involved the firm’s management also taking a stake.
