About Us

7IM is an investment management business that helps individuals, families and financial advisers manage money to meet their and their clients’ needs and aspirations.

Founded in 2002 from a basement, seven individuals established 7IM as we couldn't find anywhere we wanted to invest our families' money. Our assets under management now stand at around £17bn, and we have moved from ‘basement’ to ‘Bishopsgate’ in the City of London.
