I have known both Richard Arris and Helena Bakunowicz for the past 8 years having photographed them professionally before.

Between them they have an abundance of expertise, specialising in a discretionary investment management service working with investible assets in excess of £1.5m, aiming to provide positive returns achieved by tailoring each portfolio to the needs of the client. The investment Boutique is a trading name of Raymond James.

The independent practice was set up in November 2017 by Helena with Richard joining her in February 2018. Their new offices were found in April this year, offering the perfect setting to conduct business, with a fast rail link to central London and 6 parking spaces on site making it convenient for all their clients to relax and arrive stress free without feeling hurried.

The duo offer a bespoke and personal service covering different parts of the market. Their clients value their diversity and rightly so, they are both very approachable and ambition individuals with plans to grow their business to incorporate a financial planner and more.

On Friday 28 September I had the pleasure of photographing their launch evening to celebrate their new venture and the extensive refurbishment of the premises previously known as The Therapy Rooms. The launch was attended by clients old and new, friends and family and Cynthia Poole; Director of Relationship Management and Business Support, from Raymond James.

Guests were given a tour of the spacious building and enjoyed delicious canapés and Bollinger, finishing the evening with a group photograph outside the premises and a big thank you from Richard for everyone’s support.

Wishing Richard and Helena all the very best. The Investment Boutique business is a real asset to our town, if you would like to know more please get in touch with them on 01883 708340, to read about their investment philosophy click here.
