 Elston celebrates 10-year anniversary with double hire and new portfolio range


Elston Consulting has announced the launch of five inflation-adapted portfolios available for licensing. Celebrating its 10-year anniversary, Elston is also expanding the business with the addition of two senior professionals to the team.

Comprising five risk portfolios defined by equity risk, the inflation-adapted portfolios incorporate a value/income tilt within equities and use risk-constrained real asset and absolute return strategies as alternatives to bonds. The firm writes that the new investment portfolios underscore its continued dedication to innovating solutions for advisers.

Elston has also announced the expansion of its talent base with the appointments of two senior industry professionals Hoshang Daroga, CFA as Investment Director and Scott Adams as Head of Adviser Relations.

Founded by Henry Cobbe in October 2012, Elston writes that it has grown to become one of the leading independent investment consulting firms for financial advisers providing support to investment committees on their investment proposition.

Henry Cobbe, Head of Research at Elston Consulting, says: “We are delighted to welcome Hoshang to Elston, where his extensive experience, knowledge and skill will be of huge benefit to all the solutions we offer to advisers. Among them is our newest innovation, the inflation-adapted portfolios. We know advisers and their clients are looking for ways to rethink the traditional 60/40 model to mitigate the impact that inflation has on portfolios – particularly on bonds.   We hope this new strategy will help meet this need.”

Hoshang Daroga, Investment Director at Elston Consulting, says: “I am thrilled to be joining Elston at an exciting time for this fast-growing and dynamic business. Advisers are under increasing pressure to deliver for their clients against an incredibly challenging backdrop.  In my role as Investment Director will help advisers we work with deliver agile and innovative solutions delivered in any required format – portfolios, funds or indices – using our research, analytics and insights.”

Scott Adams, Head of Adviser Relations at Elston Consulting, says: “I am delighted to be joining Elston to help adviser firms we work with innovate for their clients with the enhancement of their investment proposition.  I am glad I can leverage my long-term industry experience to help solve real-life problems for advisers as they adapt their business models.”
