Altus was founded in 2005 by a small group of friends who believed UK Financial Services could be much more efficient with better technology. With a background in real-time, embedded systems, we knew just how powerful software could be if it was built on open standards and carefully targeted.
Over a decade later, Altus is a recognised expert in key Financial Services markets, our unique brand of specialist consultancy is in constant demand and we have built a series of market-leading solutions to some of the industry’s most challenging problems.
Based in Bath, we employ more than 70 people serving over 100 Financial Services clients – many of them household names. The company is built on strong financial and operational foundations; with annual revenues of circa £10m the company has been profitable in every one of its trading years and our software development is ISO 27001 certified.
Still privately owned, the company is a south-west FinTech success story.
As a global investment manager, our overall purpose is to help build the long-term future prosperity of our clients. We recognise that we have an important role to play in shaping our clients’ futures as well as having a strong focus on doing the right thing for our people, our suppliers and for society more widely.
In order to deliver for our stakeholders, we prioritise growing a sustainable business that takes a long-term approach. We are responsible for £500.2 billion* of assets for our clients who trust us to deliver sustainable returns. Our company operates in 35 locations with over 4,600 employees. Our investment teams are based around the world, close to our clients and close to the markets in which they invest.
