    LEGAL Rawlinson & Hunter International is a grouping of independent firms with members throughout the world. It is not a legal entity in its own right and does not offer professional services in its own name. Each independent member of Rawlinson & Hunter International is a separate firm. These firms are not members of one international partnership or group, or otherwise necessarily legal partners or members with each other, nor is any one firm responsible for the services or activities of any other. Firms in certain jurisdictions offer services through a partnership structure or through the medium of limited liability vehicles, or both, depending on the nature of services offered. The partners and directors of each of the firms within the Rawlinson & Hunter grouping pride themselves on the shared ethos and quality of advice given across the Rawlinson & Hunter grouping. As a result, use is made throughout this website of the expressions “our” and “we” in reference to the service provided by each of the Rawlinson & Hunter firms. This should not be construed as Rawlinson & Hunter International existing as a single entity.

    WEALTH REPORTING As investment products become more diverse, keeping track of the financially successful family’s assets and their value is becoming increasingly difficult. This can make monitoring the family’s wealth, at best, more time consuming and, at worst, almost impossible for the family administrator or trustee. ​ We have developed our own systems and procedures for monitoring the composition and performance of a family’s investments and other assets. Our systems enable us to present the family or its advisers with comprehensive and timely reports consolidating the family’s entire asset base. The asset and performance analyses within our reports are tailored to the individual family’s needs in a way that we believe is unique in the marketplace. ​ We consider that our independence from the investment process means that we can concentrate on our client’s needs and monitor objectively any investment adviser’s performance.
