SCM Direct was born out of the 2008 financial crisis and the Founders’ desire to improve investor outcomes, challenge complacent investment thinking and respect clients through ethical, transparent behaviour. We offer investors low cost access to high end wealth management without layers of inefficiencies, intermediaries and hidden fees.

Clients can take comfort from the fact that Alan and Gina Miller invest significant amounts of their joint and individual money across all SCM’s Portfolios, on exactly the same terms and fees as clients.

Alan Miller

Founding Partner & Chief Investment Officer

Alan is an accomplished investment manager whose more than 30 years expertise in fund management puts him amongst a handful of the highly respected UK fund managers.

 

He has managed money for a wide range of clients – retail, institutional and private clients. And very unusually he has managed a wide range of asset classes – equities, property, fixed interest and alternative assets.

 

Alan Miller

Founding Partner & Chief Investment Officer

His contrarian mind-set and principled approach to managing money led him to believe that after the financial crisis of 2008 there needed to be a radically different investment approach and strategy to looking after clients’ money. This led him to launch SCM.

Alan’s innovative and visionary investment approach saw him launch the first UK equity long/short hedge fund in 1997, which compounded at 17.2% p.a. compared to the FTSE All-Share Index return of 4.0%, over the 9.5 years Alan managed the hedge fund.

Alan previously managed the Jupiter Investment Trust, which became the New Star Investment Trust, from its inception in May 2000 to the end of June 2006. During this period the net asset value per share rose by 47.5% against a 0.2% fall in the FTSE All-Share Index.

Along with Gina, Alan launched a True and Fair Campaign in 2012 which has been successful in highlighting and changing behaviours in respect of research costs, closet index tracking, hidden fees, fund labelling, investment and holdings transparency and regulatory failings.

Alan has been awarded the following accolades:

Global Business Insight Awards 2018 – Online Wealth Manager of the Year, PAM Awards 2017 – 50 Most Influential Wealth Management, Spears 2014 – City Champions for Moral Leadership
