From Our Website

City Asset Management provides investment services to private clients and families, directly or through a trusted network of professional financial advisers. Our success is based on generating real returns that increase our clients wealth in tangible figures measured against inflation.


City Asset Management was established in 1988 by the Coghill family to deal with the complex needs of private clients and their wealth. Over the past 30 years we have developed our services and today our clients range from private individuals, families, charities, pension funds through to corporate bodies and trusts. The firm remains privately owned, mainly by the working directors and staff, which maintains our focus on clients' and their longer term needs. We are proud to be unencumbered by external shareholders and the associated conflicts of interest that might arise.


Our business is built on our people and in addition to the experience of the Board, we have a depth of talent in our investment management, research and financial planning teams. We have a strong pedigree of teaming experience with fresh talent drawn from our long-standing relationship with the University of Bath. Matt is a Chartered Wealth Manager with over 25 years experience of managing investment portfolios for high net worth individuals, their trusts, pension funds and charities. Prior to joining City Asset Management as an Investment Director he was a director at Principal Investment Management and, more recently, Head of Private Clients (London and South East) for Sanlam Private investments (UK) Ltd.


Our business is built on our people and throughout our team runs a culture that is based on striving every day to better ourselves. We have a strong pedigree of teaming experience with fresh talent drawn from our long-standing relationship with the University of Bath and details of some of our key colleagues can be found here. Our board provides a wealth of experience as well as a progressive mindset that together drives the firm forward and ensures we grow without losing sight of our purpose or culture.
