While our initial focus is on the UK institutional market which Black Isle knows well, we aim to expand our coverage to provide our asset manager clients with access to continental Europe and the Middle East. There will be no compromise on the quality of our service, so the timing of our expansion will be driven by our clients’ needs and by our ability to find new partners who share our vision.
We would be delighted to hear from experienced institutional sales professionals who would like to join the Black Isle team, particularly those located in – and with extensive experience and contacts in – the Nordics, Benelux, Germany, Switzerland, and the Middle East.
Why Black Isle?
Steve is a Scot hailing from Glasgow, so he wanted a name with a Scottish connection. After a long career in investment, it hadn’t escaped him that some of the most successful businesses in the industry have names combining geological features with the colour black.
The Black Isle is, perhaps surprisingly, a peninsula on the east coast of Scotland north of Inverness. It’s nowhere near Glasgow, but the name is satisfyingly mysterious and distinctive. So Black Isle Capital Partners was born, and if our business achieves only a small fraction of the success of BlackRock and Blackstone, Steve’s theory will have been vindicated!
