What We Do

We provide traditional execution only and advisory stockbroking, segregated and pooled investment management, market making and corporate finance services to our private and institutional clients in the Channel Islands and beyond.

It is our aim to build the leading Channel Islands based investment services firm through fostering a reputation for exceptional customer service, integrity and accountability.

We create value for our clients and stakeholders through a business model that promotes our key value drivers; the personal relationships we develop with our clients, our proprietary investment processes, and our skilled employee base.

Our History

Cenkos Channel Islands (now Ravenscroft) was founded in Guernsey by Jon Ravenscroft in 2005 as the offshore private client focussed subsidiary of Cenkos Securities plc, itself founded by our Chairman Andy Stewart.

In 2007 the Company was listed on the Channel Islands Securities Exchange, and in 2008 we opened our office in Jersey and added an asset management team to provide segregated and pooled investment management services.

In 2012, following Cenkos Securities plc's disposal of their controlling shareholding, we became the only Channel Islands-based independent stockbroker and investment manager.

In the spring of 2013 the company name was changed to Ravenscroft Limited highlighting our independence and strong local roots.

Today we employ more than 60 people across Guernsey and Jersey and have £2.45bn of assets under administration (as per the interim report and accounts 30th June 2016) for both private and institutional clients.

Following the completion of an acquisition in March 2015 Ravenscroft purchased a 75% share of another independent stockbroking firm based in Peterborough A Vartan Limited which has now been re-branded to Vartan Ravenscroft. Vartan Ravenscroft employs 14 people and has approximately £300m of assets under administration.
