Who we are
Edenhurst provides wealth management and family office services for private clients. That is at the heart of what we do, and so is our independent status which allows us to focus on creating value from our clients’ assets over the long term.
Based in London but working with clients from around the world, we offer the benefit of over 35 years of combined experience in every aspect of wealth management and a uniquely personal approach.
We believe that a client’s long-term interests are best served in a relationship based on trust and understanding. To achieve that, we will often go above and beyond what would normally be expected, to provide the expert advice and guidance that the individual client really needs.
Whether we’re dealing with a straightforward transaction or the most complicated negotiations, we always put our clients’ best interests first. That’s why they tend to stay with us.
We have now opened a sister office, Edenhurst Capital, in Dubai for clients who either have no links to the UK or see Dubai as a natural hub for their global business interests. Edenhurst Capital is an Investment Management company, but with the considerable advantage of being able to offer the same services that Edenhurst Private Wealth provides to our clients in the UK.
Edenhurst was founded in 2013 by Tom Hearnden and Erandha de Silva Wijeyeratne. With over 35 years’ experience between them of working for private clients at HSBC, they had both reached senior positions within that organisation. They had also gained an enviable reputation, not just for their investment expertise but, equally importantly, for the integrity and dedication with which they looked after their clients’ interests.
Tom and Erandha set up Edenhurst in 2013 because they recognised an emerging trend. With the diversification of global capital, a growing number of wealthy individuals and families are looking for safe havens for their investments. Even during these uncertain times, London remains one of these safe havens.
Investing in other places, such as London, means having to deal with the complexities of unfamiliar and often far more regulated financial environments. Increasingly, they want to be able to hand over the management of all their private financial affairs to a partner they can trust absolutely. Edenhurst was established to answer this need and, today, we provide independent and unbiased advice, as well as bespoke solutions, to more than 40 families.
In 2019, Tom and Erandha expanded the business. They opened a sister office, Edenhurst Capital, based in Dubai, as well as a specialist independent property department. To enable this expansion, they invited a trusted team of people to join Edenhurst, who all have blue chip careers behind them and who are invested into the vision of the group.
