We’re Seven Investment Management (www.7IM.co.uk), a business that helps individuals and their families manage their capital to meet their financial needs and aspirations.

We’re independently minded and we set up our business to do things the way we think they ought to be done. We invest in our own portfolios, so our family money is in the same place as yours. We now look after around £12bn of clients’ money, as well as our own. We keep our promises, make things clear and simple, fix what’s wrong, do the right thing and the very, very best job we can. We call it radical common sense.

We’ve been around for 15 years, which means we’ve probably seen the best and worst the world can throw at us. Yet we’ve still delivered an investment performance consistent with what we’ve promised our clients we would try to do.



Larry Gagosian opened his first gallery in Los Angeles in 1980, specialising in modern and contemporary art. Five years later, he expanded his activities to New York. More than three decades later, Gagosian has evolved into a global network with sixteen exhibition spaces in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Paris, Rome, Athens, Geneva, and Hong Kong.

Gagosian’s vibrant exhibitions programme features and contextualises the work of leading international artists and hosts museum-quality historical exhibitions.

The gallery publishes scholarly exhibition catalogues, artist monographs, and catalogues raisonnés. The Gagosian Shop, dedicated to showcasing publications and editions by gallery artists, opened in 2009. Since 2012, an innovative magazine on the gallery’s artists has been published four times per year, which was rebranded as the Gagosian Quarterly in 2017. The Quarterly launched an international talk series that same year and an online editorial website just premiered in 2018: www.gagosianquarterly.com
