Jonathan Gain is the CEO of Stellar Asset Management, a tax efficient investment manager. He has been at the forefront of tax-efficient investment in the UK since the early 1990s, when he joined Close Brothers. Close became market leaders in the creation and promotion of tax planning products designed for investors seeking income and capital gains tax relief.
In 2007, he formed Stellar Asset Management where he has continued to develop innovative and robust services that are underpinned by long-standing government legislation, with particular emphasis on the mitigation of inheritance tax.
Jonathan lives in Kent with his wife and three children and supports Manchester United -obviously.
I want to support the work of the Transparency Task Force as I fundamentally believe that, as custodians of investors hard earned capital, we have an obligation to disclose exactly what we do, how we manage and how we charge for these services. The industry has been opaque for far too long on these matters and I was delighted to step forward when asked by Andy. Transparency is one of Stellar’s core principals and the financial services industry will become more trusted if it continues to improve its accountability. The work and energy of the members of the TTF will facilitate this and I look forward to working with them.
