James Barton


Featherstone CEO James Barton isn’t afraid to position himself in opposition to the ‘prevailing winds’ of his industry: 'We are all refugees from large banks, we feel that clients no longer want the bland industry stereotype but prefer a smaller firm whose interests are aligned with theirs,’ he says. ‘The industry is ever-homogenising- and unfortunately seems to focus more on shareholders than on clients.’

Born of a single-family office, Featherstone decided to provide a small number of other private clients the many benefits of a boutique family office. 'Our clients invest alongside the founding family and we provide them with access to lesser-known, harder to discover (and hopefully better performing) funds than private clients can typically gain exposure to’.
