Our History

Vartan and Son (now Vartan Ravenscroft) was founded in Peterborough by Andrew Vartan and his father in October 1993. The company name was then changed to A Vartan Limited in July 2014.

In March 2015 following the completion of an acquisition, Ravenscroft Limited, an independent stockbroking and investment management firm based in the Channel Island purchased a 75% share of A Vartan Limited, following which the company re-branded to Vartan Ravenscroft. Vartan Ravenscroft now employs 15 people in Peterborough and has just under £400m of Assets Under Administration.

Ravenscroft Limited provides traditional execution and advisory stockbroking, segregated and pooled investment management, market making and corporate finance services. The Ravenscroft group further employs more than 80 people across Guernsey and Jersey and has £2.87bn of assets under administration (as per the interim report and accounts 31st December 2016) for both private and institutional clients, mainly based in the Channel Islands.
