Following a degree in Economics and Politics from the University of Oxford and working as an interest rate swap and currency trader at Bankers’ Trust in New York and London I founded the business which evolved into HFMC, with my wife Jacqueline. Today I have over 30 years’ experience in the financial services sector.
I am responsible for the strategic vision and operational management of the Group. In 1992 I wrote: “I want to build the highest quality financial management business in this country. Espousing the principle of service in full, having identified their objectives, our clients will experience total care, objectivity and independence”.
Because I foresaw the industry transforming towards transparency and vertical integration, I instigated the development of the Group’s asset management proposition and focus on holistic fee based planning. We now provide wealth management and employee benefit services on a “holistic” basis to the high net worth market place.
As CEO I lead a team of more than 80 staff and partners whilst also working with an immediate client support team providing independent financial advice to some 80 high and ultra high net worth UK and Offshore families.
Outside of business I love to take out my historic racing car and my Porsche, and enjoy skiing, hiking and cycling with my wife and 3 adult children. I have 3 Finnish Lapphund dogs including a 6 month old puppy. I help manage my late father John Hoyland’s extensive artistic legacy. Jackie and I love young people and engage in a range of philanthropic and support activities related to them.
