‘Clients are at the core of Ravenscroft’s business and it is absolutely key that they are represented at a board level.

‘Sophie’s investment experience and expertise and her focus on client service will be invaluable to the board. She knows the business intimately and has a passion for customer satisfaction and the other directors look forward to working closely with her.’

‘Everything that we do at Ravenscroft revolves around the wants and needs of our diverse client base. We offer investments services to all types of investor; from individual to corporate, younger to older, retail to institutional and from local residents to those right across the globe. That means our client service has to be both adaptive and proactive. Putting that on the board agenda demonstrates how fundamental our clients’ satisfaction is to Ravenscroft,’ she said.
