At Garrett Knight Associates, our focused approach is founded on the belief that investing in a diversified portfolio of high-value stocks has consistently led to the outperformance of market averages. By carrying out rigorous analysis before determining potential, we identify companies with constructive return-to-risk advantages over the market cycle.

Our primary goal is to grow client assets transparently and with low risk. We achieve this through a careful selection process of the right management team to deliver outstanding investment returns and top-quality client services that facilitates the building of an innovative, bespoke service to suit each client's needs.
