Our Values and Charitable Giving

Our innovative and entrepreneurial approach to corporate finance, wealth management and compliance, means we are nimble enough to move quickly whilst drawing on a wealth of expertise and experience developed over several decades from all our varied origins, with our team drawn from many well-known City institutions. Overall we fuse traditional values with an entrepreneurial culture.

Our Purpose

Helping our clients, our people and our communities to thrive.

To provide world-class advice and solutions that create lasting authentic relationships.

Our ValuesSturgeon Ventures FCA Authorisation Values



Continually placing you, our client, at the heart of everything we do, a shared philosophy to achieve outstanding results.


A dedicated team of experts with the necessary experience and knowledge to match your aspirations with the right solutions.


The freedom to be flexible and move quickly to maximise opportunities and mitigate risk, predicting and capitalising on changes and trends in markets and the economy.

Due Diligence

Like the Sturgeon, we perform as much research and due diligence on our targets and on our projects before engagement. The Sturgeon is a bottom feeder, tasting with its whiskers before it bites.


Our commercial vision means we stay ahead of trends and look for innovation at every turn.


To be your partner, having walked the walk, a trusted lead down many well-trodden and sometimes tricky paths.


Listening to you and learning is at the heart of our daily activities.


Ensuring clarity and transparency at all times, continually assessing your needs and evaluating the most appropriate strategy for the appropriate outcomes.


As a team we are always curious. Curiosity drives innovation and constant learning both internally and externally. Our Curiosity enhances our relationships with clients and our community encouraging us all to thrive.

Charitable Giving

At Sturgeon Ventures and Sturgeon Compliance, we believe that we all have a little bit more that we can give back which can be a powerful tool for good.

Our London office has recycling and energy saving buildings, we recycle all we can and use recycled products and continually assess where improvements can be made.
