Before Nucleus the wrap market was dominated by product providers and fund managers…
… we introduced a model that would change the landscape forever and turn the investment market on its head.
It’s been 15 years since we kicked off with seven founding firms, a couple of desks, a load of late nights and a lot of unknowns. Now we’re a strong brand, backed by continued financial success and we owe this to our dynamic audience. There have been lots of milestones and happy memories along the way. Here are just a few.
