Rathbone Brothers (lse|RAT) is a leading British-based investment management business. It is headquartered in London and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.


The business was founded by William Rathbone II in 1742 as a Liverpool-based timber trading business. In the 19th century it became a leading trader in cotton from the United States and in 1841 it became the Liverpool agent for the East India Company. In the early 20th century it abandoned its trading operations and focused on financial management, initially for the Rathbone family, but subsequently for the general public. It was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1984.


The Group is organised as follows:
* Investment management
* Tax and trusts
* Unit trusts

It manages £12.4bn of funds. [ [http://www.accountancyage.com/accountancyage/news/2216513/stockton-join-rathbone-brothers Accountancy Age] ]
