About Us

A Potted History

  • Our founder, Dr Walter Scott, started his investment career at Ivory & Sime in 1972, working his way up to the position of Director.
  • Whilst there he met Ian Clark and Marilyn Harrison, with whom he founded Walter Scott & Partners Limited in 1983.
  • His internally developed investment philosophy started an impressive long-term record of performance.
  • Over twenty years the founders successfully grew this firm into one with a substantial client and asset base.
  • In 2006 the company was acquired by Mellon Bank (now BNY Mellon).
  • After a period running a family office, Dr Scott and Ms Harrison founded Scott Investment Partners in Henley-on-Thames.
  • Dr Scott’s tried and tested investment philosophy continues to be combined with excellence in customer service to protect and grow client assets.
