Why Holborn Assets?

  • Transparency

    As a family-run company, transparency is second nature to us. Our operation has grown internationally on the basis of the trust that exists between our staff and our clients.

  • Training and Qualifications

    For all our staff we provide continued professional development in both “soft” skills and “hard” technical areas to enable them to work confidently on our client’s behalf. As a result, our advisers can all guarantee the requisite level of qualification in their area of expertise and geographical operation.

  • Client-centred

    We have structured our business and invested in staff and infrastructure with the single aim of helping our clients to achieve their financial goals over the long run. Our advisers will be in your corner for the duration; we offer support at every key financial milestone of a client’s journey from cradle to grave, with a combination of astute long-term planning and immediate help on the phone when you need it.

History and Heritage

Holborn Assets was established in 1998 and is widely considered to be the financial services company of choice in the expatriate market it serves. No other independent company can match our expertise or depth of proposition. We have therefore always felt at home headquartered in Dubai, the world’s fastest growing City State and one of the economic wonders of the world.

Holborn Assets has regulated operations in the UK, Europe, Asia and South Africa and a global administration hub employing 150 people in Sri Lanka. The corporate DNA that has underpinned our growth is simple: we are passionate about helping people put the right money, in the right place, at the right time.

We are a friendly, family company with British values of integrity and respect for all.

Don't just take our word for it

I have to admit I was a little …

“I have to admit I was a little skeptical when someone called me out of the blue to offer these services. However, from my very first conversation with Ian Leigh he put my mind at rest. The process was quite long because of pension regulations in the UK, but I understood that this would be the case as it was explained to me that this would probably happen. My husband and I met with Ian in our home and reviewed our options, there was absolutely no hard sell. I was an IFA in the UK so had a good understanding of our pensions and Ian was able to provide advice and help on overseas pension options. Would I recommend Ian and Holborn Assets to my friends, most definitely. Thanks for everything you have done to help us in this complicated world of pensions your service was excellent.”

Extremely happy and satisfied.

“From the first contact, we were treated with respect and curtesy. Our contact, Ian Leigh had a wealth of knowledge and walked is through everything in detail and in layman' terms. Ian was fast at responding to our queries and ensured things were chased up with his other colleagues at the same speed. We are glad that our contact was Ian and we would recommend both him and the Company to anyone else.”
