Our Business

Unicorn is an independent asset manager with a dedicated and passionate team, focussed on delivering long-term value for investors. Based in the historic Charterhouse, a relative oasis in the City of London, we focus on shutting out the noise in markets and look to deliver superior returns for our clients over the long term.

Established in 2000, we specialise in UK Equity investing via a range of actively managed funds and with a structural bias towards the opportunities in small and mid-sized companies. With well over 100 years’ investment experience, we are well placed to determine the true value of a business and it’s potential.

Our investment approach is high-conviction, with fundamental, bottom up analysis and research conducted in house.

Our expectation is that we will hold stakes in our investee companies for several years. The decision to invest is similar to that of an owner-manager’s business decision to participate in a quality business franchise.
