Making more possible Today. Tomorrow. Together.
''When you show yourself to the world and display your talents, you naturally stir up all kinds of resentment, envy, and other manifestations of insecurity.''
― Robert Greene.
Our experiences in life and business mould us, and they don’t just tell the story of Oakmount and Partners as a firm, they also communicate the strength and depth of the 'Values' that have underpinned Oakmount from the very beginning.
In life, we all only have so much energy and so much time to spend.
''Every moment wasted on the affairs of those who seek to immitate and destroy you subtracts from your strength.'' ―Glenn King.
At Oakmount and Partners, we have always maintained our independence and self-reliance which in turn has gained us more respect among our clients, and places our business in a position of strength from which we can choose to help others on our own initiative.
“Once you step into a fight that is not of your choosing, you lose all initiative. The combatants' interests become your interests; you become their tool. Learn to control yourself, to restrain your natural tendency to join the fight. With every battle, they grow weaker, while you grow stronger with every battle you avoid.” ― Robert Greene.
Oakmount and Partners came into being through the vision and determination of its founder, Glenn King, who incorporated the company in December 2009. From its inception, the goal was clear: to establish a global financial institution known for delivering unmatched professionalism and service to clients and stakeholders alike.
Significant achievements in various domains have marked our journey, but it's also true that our path encountered unexpected challenges. In 2014/15, our company faced a distressing situation when it was cloned, a setback that shadowed our operations. This experience was unsettling for us as a company and a brand, as it momentarily hindered our activities.
In response, we took decisive action. We collaborated with Action Fraud/Police and engaged the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to address the issue head-on. These efforts led to a thorough investigation, with both authorities assisting us in identifying those responsible for the cloning.
Regrettably, this phenomenon is not isolated, and it's a trend that the FCA has noted is on the rise year after year. The UK has witnessed an alarming surge in identity theft and cloning cases, reflecting the changing landscape of financial fraud.
Our resilience throughout this challenging period stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to our clients, stakeholders, and the values we uphold.
Our dedication to navigating these hurdles underscores our commitment to maintaining our client's trust.
As we look back at our history, we do so with gratitude for the lessons learned and the strength gained. Our journey of ambition, resilience, and growth continues, bolstered by the knowledge that we've overcome challenges and emerged more robust and determined.
As with all businesses today, challenges can arise at varying scales and can be down to a number of things, but most commonly the following are the main obstacles in today's hectic business environments:
Uncertainty about the future.
Regulation and compliance.
Competencies and recruiting the right talent.
At Oakmount and Partners, our journey has been one of growth, resilience, and unwavering determination. As with any long-standing business, our path has been marked by triumphs and challenges, each contributing to our evolution as a firm and brand.
In the face of adversity, we have remained proactive and steadfast in our approach to business management. Learning from our experiences, we navigated through a period of being cloned, a situation that tested our business acumen and character. This challenging time was a testament to our strength of will as we confronted and systematically resolved the issues that emerged.
''Building Oakmount and Partners as a brand was always about creating a legacy and something that would be around long after the founders have passed.''
The story of Oakmount and Partners is one of recovery and renewed determination. We emerged from these trials with a hunger for success more extraordinary than ever before. Built on a foundation of resilience and an unyielding spirit, we are here to stay, poised to continue our journey for many more years.
From the outset, our vision for Oakmount and Partners was to create a legacy that would endure long after our founders. Our history, with all its trials and triumphs, reminds us that favourable and adverse challenges are an inevitable part of the business landscape. Yet, what truly defines character is not the presence of challenges but the unwavering commitment to face them head-on with a proactive and steadfast approach.
Since 2018, as we diligently rebuilt our brand, we have stood by the many individuals and companies who entrusted us as their custodians. We have been a steadfast pillar of support, helping them navigate the complexities of the investment landscape.
Our investment philosophy is rooted in the belief that genuine growth comes from learning and adapting. We are committed to supporting individuals and companies that have emerged more robust and resilient from their challenges. Such resilience is a quality that garners admiration, both in business and life. We understand that failure only occurs when hope is lost, and giving up is not an option. Our clients depend on us, and it is for their sake that we persistently strive for excellence.
Oakmount and Partners, as a firm, celebrates over a 14 years of existence—a journey marked by maturity, growth, and adaptability. Our experiences have sculpted us into the brand we are today, and we use them to continually enhance our business strategies on the path to eminent success.
With unyielding determination and gratitude for the lessons learned, we forge ahead, ready to embrace every challenge and opportunity that comes our way.
''We have been sculpted from all of our experiences and use them to improve our business in building that path to eminent success.'' -Glenn King - Managing Director.
