Investment & Operations

Andrew Shaw

Chief Investment Officer & Chief Operating Officer

Andy has worked in financial services for more than 30 years in a variety of roles, starting as a Financial Planner, achieving Chartered status in 2006, before moving onto more technical roles, setting up and heading the company’s Research Team. Currently, he has a dual role. As CIO, he focuses on the investment part of the business, sitting on both our core and sustainable/positive impact Investment Committees, whilst as COO he is responsible for the long-term strategy of the business.

He lives in Witney with his wife, Karolina, and their two sons, Maximilian and Tobias, splitting his time between the Witney and London offices. Whilst he says relaxation time is at a premium with a young family, whenever the chance arises it involves sport (he is an Arsenal and Wasps fan), music, and reading any book available but especially historical works.
