Troy Asset Management is an independent fund management company founded in 2000. Our investment style is unconventional, yet conservative.
Troy was founded to focus on absolute rather than relative returns, and aim to preserve and grow its investors’ capital over the very long term. Over the years we have attracted other investors who share this patient attitude to investment management, including family offices, wealth managers, investment advisers, charities and endowments.
