Management Team

​The Vertua Management Team has been evolving a management system which maintains integrity and mitigates risks by centralising administration, marketing and revenue management.

This allows the Fund to better select Asset managers that reflect our ethos and with the Leadership of our COO to enhance guest experience.

The Fund operates with a very flat operating structure designed to minimise Fund’s operating costs of the underlying businesses. This strategy excelled during the Covid-19 crisis, as the operating costs ensure a lower break even for the entire group.
