What We Do
Brentley Maddox Global serves individuals and families in their quest for anything from better returns on existing capital or inheritance planning to accelerated wealth/capital accumulation or full family office facilities. We are staunchly independent and derive great pride in the fact that we neither ask for nor receive commissions or emoluments in return for selecting or endorsing the products of one provider over those of another to our clients.
Although most client holdings will be spread across assets concentrated in key markets in advanced economies, we have made every possible endeavor to ensure that they have the ability to access all markets in all jurisdictions, be they small, mid or large-cap equities, mutual funds, fixed income or alternative assets.
Important as the ability to invest anywhere is, we never forget the importance of our roots. We use our intimate knowledge of our continental markets to our advantage by providing unique and often exclusive Asia-focused investment opportunities to discerning clients in the advanced markets of the West.
Profiting From Innovation
We have forged close-knit relationships with some of the most influential and venerated banks, fund providers, broker dealers and angel/seed investors in the region in order to gain access to the latest and most promising initial public offerings within technology, life sciences, communications, and energy for onward dissemination to our clientele.
One of our goals is to grow the pool of resources from which innovative, forward-thinking companies and entrepreneurs can raise capital while giving investors access to the exceptional upside potential that the large investment banks, broker-dealers and underwriters in the West often ring fence for themselves and their preferred clients before IPOs are even announced.
Brentley Maddox Global is a wholly independent practitioner and, as such, we don’t have to deal with restrictions in terms of the markets, funds or investment classes we judge to be suitable for our clients' investment and wealth management needs.
We are not financially tied or subordinate to any larger entity and, in keeping with our independent standing, we don’t accept the financial incentives many providers offer in order to see their products offered before those of their competitors.
Brentley Maddox Global has been and always will be a steadfast advocate of relying upon fees for our services. We firmly believe that the commission-driven system, in which the level of remuneration generated for an adviser depends on selling a product, establishes a clear conflict of interest between the adviser and the client. Our fee-based remuneration model eliminates such conflict as no incentive exists other than, of course, doing our best to advance the interests of our clients.
As far as we’re concerned, clients don’t only need to be assured of the pertinence and suitability of the guidance they receive but they also need to feel absolute confidence in the integrity of the firm they entrust safe-keeping of their hard-earned wealth to.
Over the years, our industry has seen many practitioners surrendering their independence; “consolidation” has become a byword for “progress” despite the fact that such events can often leaving clients with less in the way of choice.
In our expert view, only a practitioner with the means by which to access to the entire marketplace can truly claim to offer impartial advice. As a proudly independent privately-held concern, Brentley Maddox Global can offer clients the highest caliber of guidance and service, tailored to the exacting requirements of the discerning client who demands clarity, integrity and professionalism are supplied as standard; not as cost-options.

From the high frequency trading systems and data feeds to the state-of-the-art portfolio pricing software, Brentley Maddox Global is resolutely committed to maintaining our tireless efforts to improve the service we provide.
That said, it’s fanciful to imagine that technology can realistically supplant the expertise of a professional adviser with a comprehensive arsenal of financial market and life experience as well as the ability to empathize with the needs of a client with a pressing need to take care of his or her family in the event of his untimely passing. Attributes like this are not easily taught or acquired – they must be nurtured and developed over time which is why the commitment our professionals make to clients is matched only by the commitment Brentley Maddox Global make to them.
